The Greatest Soccer Goal Celebration Ever (Video)
Generally, when I think of a soccer goal celebration, I think of some Hispanic man screaming “GOOALLLLL!!!!!!” on a Spanish station, while a player slides on his knees on the field and pumps his fists in the air. That or Brandi Chastain ripping her shirt off in the World Cup of course.
In this match between Football Club of Manchester United and Castleton G., Manchester U. is up 3-0 early in the game. Castleton G. then finally gets on the board with this filthy goal. The goal was not as unique as the celebration by the player who scored it, though.
The celebration in this video goes way beyond the usual. Not so far beyond that it incites riots like the one in the Bulgarian game recently, but still out of the ordinary. It involves some creativity and thought go into it before it happens. Or maybe he just ran up there on impulse. Either way its definitely not the doggy-style celebration. Basically, as soon as he scores the goal, the player runs up into the stands and sits down. Whereupon he proceeds to begin to applaud for his own goal, as if he were a member of the crowd. Clever and classy, to go with an amazing goal. I wish they allowed celebrations like these in the NFL.
