Soccer Team Has Perfected The Art Of The Goal Celebration

Scores are rare; celebrate them. This Icelandic team does, in a choreographed routine that puts "run around with your shirt pulled over your head" to shame. But, as past videos show, the team has a history of Tony-worthy theatrical exuberance.
