(Video): Watch hilarious moment Benfica youth player imitates Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest goal celebration

Having only inventing it over the weekend Cristiano Ronaldo’s new goal celebration is already already catching steam, as a Benfica youth player borrowed the new celebration.

After scoring Manchester United’s second goal, Ronaldo surprisingly ditched the now iconic SIUUU celebration to launch his new style, which drew mixed reactions from the football world.

After scoring past Everton’s Jordan Pickford, Ronaldo and United’s new team-mate Antony stood upright with their heads back, eyes shut, and all fingers crossed in front of their chests.


According to Man Utd, the celebration was an inside self-deprecating joke with his United teammates.

The 37-year-old’s celebration at Goodison Park resembles his sleeping position when travelling with the squad, which has clearly rubbed off the likes of Antony.

Benfica youth player emulates Ronaldo

During a UEFA Youth League match, pitting Portuguese side Benfica and French giants PSG, a player from Benfica amusingly mimicked the celebration after scoring a brilliant goal, according to Twitter.

The winger played a quick one-two with his teammate before firing towards the keeper, but it was parried onto his path. At that moment, he shot the ball into the roof before pulling the celebration.

The wholesome moment demonstrates the impact of Ronaldo, who is surely nearing the end of a glittering career. The goal on which he introduced the celebration was his 700th, according to Transfermarkt. Therefore, a new celebration should be coming after his 1400th goal.
