Cristiano Ronaldo has once again left football fans in awe with his latest celebration during Portugal’s Euro 2024 qualifying match against Luxembourg. The Portugal superstar captained his team to a resounding 6-0 victory, scoring two goals in the process.
Ronaldo’s first goal came just nine minutes into the game, setting the tone for a dominant performance by the 2016 champions. Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva added to the scoreline, before Ronaldo grabbed his second and Portugal’s fourth just after the half-hour mark. Otavio and Rafael Leao completed the rout late on.
However, it was Ronaldo’s celebration after his early opener that caught the attention of viewers. The 38-year-old raced towards the corner as usual before taking off with his trademark ‘siuuu’ jump and spin. But instead of landing with his arms straight down by his sides, he mixed it up by crossing his hands across his chest – a slight variation on the interlocking fingers.
The radical shake-up of his celebration left fans amazed, with many taking to social media to express their admiration. One fan said, “Cristiano Ronaldo really combined both of his celebrations.” Another wrote, “Nah Ronaldo actually combined two celebrations together. WATCH everyone copy this as well. His influence is massive man.”
A third added, “Ronaldo did the Siuu and the peace celebration together. New celebration just dropped.” One fan commented, “This double celebration of Cristiano Ronaldo is gonna take over the world again.” And a final user joked, “Cristiano Ronaldo keeps breaking football records every day… The first footballer ever to do a 2 in 1 celebration.”
Later on in the game, a fan wearing a shirt for Saudi club Al-Nassr invaded the pitch and mobbed Ronaldo. The forward appeared delighted and responded with a wink and a thumb up.
Ronaldo’s performance in the match was yet another reminder of his incredible talent and longevity in the sport. With 198 caps for Portugal, he continues to break records and inspire fans around the world.
