Goal celebrations are an integral part of football, as it portrays the feelings of a footballer at the moment he found the back of the net.
This tradition has been done by footballers since the early days of the game and has continued up to this date.
And as the game continues to evolve, so also does the art of celebration, with some players inventing their style.
Despite the effort of some players to invent their own style of celebration peculiar to them, there are others who prefer to mimick famous celebrations.
