Cristiano Ronaldo is a man of few celebrations. That makes sense. To stay on top as long as he has, you have to be completely about the work, not the reward. However, for a guy that’s scored nearly 630 professional goals in his career, his arsenal of goal celebrations is weak.
Roberto Firmino is one of the best celebrators in Europe. Not only does he have the most bookings for excessive celebration (seven) since 2012/2013, Firmino puts his creativity to good use when thinking up celebrations.

Notts County scores. Darkness falls and magic stirs as Matt Tootle becomes a creature of the night — a nightcrawler! But it looks like it’s time for an intervention with the rest of his teammates, because they just don’t look interested in joining Tootle for a quick game.
Nightcrawlers is just what it sounds like, it’s a game where you crawl around like worms in the night, mining minerals under the bed while using your imagination. Tootle clearly knows what’s up.
Christian Pulisic may be The Truth, but someone needs to tell him the truth about his goal celebration. We can’t figure out what the hell he’s doing. Maybe someone else can, but we can't.
Before you get bent out of shape and start screaming at us, accusing us of being un-American, hold your horses. We know Christian Pulisic is great. We're with you. He's certainly one of the top American soccer players of all time. There's a chance he's the best American ever. Like, better than Abe Lincoln. Seriously, we feel you, @FearTheWall.
