Baltimore Ravens hit CR7’s SIU celebration in humorous football/fútbol crossover

Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic “SIU” celebration has been popular for years now and has reached the point where it has crossed over into other sports. CR7’s go-to celly made an appearance on Sunday Night Football when the Baltimore Ravens had a planned routine after a touchdown.

Zay Flowers Ronaldo celebration

Rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers scored late in the game on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers and had clearly been practicing a Ronaldo celebration.

After scampering into the endzone he set up a penalty kick while fellow receiver Odell Beckham Jr. played the role as goalkeeper. Announcer Mike Tirico joined in on the fun.

Here’s a comparison to Ronaldo doing the celebration.

Flowers wasn't the only professional athlete doing the SIU celebration this past weekend as Manchester United's Alejandro Garnacho did so after a magnificent bicycle kick.

It’s great to see soccer culture appreciated in the United States’ most popular sport.
