One of the greatest spectacles in soccer is obviously scoring a goal, but in today’s game there seems to be just as much emphasis on the celebrations that follow. Sometimes a player has a signature move or salute that they make to the crowd, other times celebrations come about on the fly due to the magnitude of the goal that was just scored. Goal scoring celebrations may have started with the Jurgen Klinsmann dive and the Alan Shearer salute, but they’ve certainly come a long way since then. In today’s game even managers are getting in on the act when the occasion calls for it, and sometimes when it doesn’t. From Paolo Di Canio pumping his legs like he’s getting ready for the high jump to Stjarnan FC showing the world how it’s done, check out this, GIF Gallery: The Most Badass Goal Scoring Celebrations in Soccer History.
