1. Football has seen its fair share of unique celebrations but few rival this Icelandic side’s innovative effort.
After Halldor Orri Bjornsson converted his spot kick he joined his fellow Stjarnan FC teammates in reeling in Johann Laxdal. The creative celebration could perhaps be a tribute to the important role fishing industry plays in Iceland’s economy.
2. Following his late goal for Cruzeiro in their 3-1 win over Atletico MG, Roger ran towards the Brazilian club’s mascot, snatched the fox’s head and waltzed towards the jubilant fans.
3. AS Roma were competing for the Scudetto in late 2008. The Rome side already held a 2-0 lead against visitors Cagliari when Mirko Vucinic added a third. The Montenegrin ran to the crowd, whipped off his shirt to unveil another identical home jersey and promptly disposed of his shorts, all on a cold December night.
4. Nathan Tyson’s celebration came at the end of a tempestuous affair between bitter rivals Derby County and Nottingham Forest. Forest’s Tyson scored the winning goal in the match and decided to recreate a scene akin to Braveheart. He grabbed the corner flag and triumphantly jogged past the Derby fans, almost sparking open warfare.
5. In a match between Real Salt Lake and LA Galaxy, Argentine FabiÃƒÂ¡n EspÃƒÂndola opted to perform his customary back-flip in the aftermath of his “goal”. The celebration, however, went horribly wrong for Espindola, who landed awkwardly and broke his ankle. Matters worsened further when his strike was disallowed for offside.
