The 1xBet global betting house shares the most iconic celebrations of goals that have changed forever the world of sports, popular culture and even the video game industry.
For some years, a football player who had scored a goal raised his hand in triumph (his teammates did the same), the captain extended his hand, sometimes hugging it, and the entire team walked toward the center of the field. However, one day the situation will change.
1. Candentes Brazilian Kiss
1958 World Cup, Group Stage Match Brazil Vs. the Soviet Union
In this match too, the Brazilians opened the scoreboard in the third minute, and were able to maintain their success for a short time. Then, 13 minutes before the end of regulation time, Vava, number 20 of the future champion, was recorded twice. For his team, this goal guaranteed elimination from the group. Here Pele & Co. cold show Sweden how it’s celebrated in Brazil. Teammates fell to the ground in front of him and pressed him so that, according to Pele’s recollections, “the kind doctor revived him for several minutes”.
2. “Tardelli’s Cry”
1982 World Cup Final Match Italia – Germany
It’s not that Nadi screamed on the field before Tardelli, they screamed loud enough, and believed it too. However, after Marco scored the second goal against the German team (the Italians won that final with a score of 3-1), I ended an incredibly emotional career with a roar of victory. Cameramen were thrilled, the race was shown on all television channels in the world, but only a few people heard the cries. Huge crowds at the Santiago Bernabeu were on hand to enjoy the charming expressions of the Italian tifosi. In addition, “Tardelli’s cry” is remembered by every Italian who watched the 1982 championship match.
3. Hugo Sanchez and the first somersault
1986 World Cup (but not safe)
Hugo may not remember when he performed his first acrobatics, but his acrobatics and the goals he wrote about thereafter were authentic masterpieces. Sánchez knew there was more to do than acrobatics: he scored goals with chilis and all kinds of side knives, finished as La Liga’s top scorer for four consecutive years and won multiple titles with Real Madrid. As FourFourTwo rightly pointed out, he was a YouTube footballer before YouTube even existed.
4. Victory Ball by Roger Milla
1990 World Cup, Group Stage Match Cameroon v Romania
In 1990, Roger Milla, a veteran of the Cameroonian national team, was already 38 years old. The play ended quietly at the Club Saint-Pierrois on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean. Roger did not participate in the Mundial, as his international career ended in 1988. Everything changed after a phone call from the President of Cameroon, who asked the famous forward to join the national team in the World Cup in Italy. Of course, “Viejo Leon” could not be denied.
Milla scored his first goal in that championship in a group stage match against the national team of Romania. After that, he ran towards the corner flag and started doing the incendiary Makosa Cameroon dance. Incredibly, Milla didn’t rehearse her dance, as she wasn’t sure it would be released on the field. In any case, his ball forever changed the celebration of goals in modern football.
5. Cuna Ball for Bebeto Jr.
1994 World Cup Quarter Final Match Brazil vs Netherlands
In the 62nd minute, Brazilian lead Bebeto won over the grace of the defense and rivals Portero, Peteo the ballon a la Red Vesia and began to mesmerize the imaginary kuna of his newborn son Matthias, named in honor of the captain of the German national team. And born a few days before the game. The baby was accompanied by his teammates Romário and Mazinho, this gesture became a cult and now all football players in the world celebrate the birth of their children in this way.
6. El hero de la class trabajadora
1997 Cup Winners’ Cup, Liverpool – Brann (Bergen) quarter-final match
The relationship between football and politics is different in the sweet dreams of FIFA staff. So on 20 March 1997, Merseyside player Robbie Fowler celebrated his goal in a rather goofy manner, reminding the five Liverpool Dockers who had been dismissed since 1995. This original idea cost Robbie a fine of 2,000 Swiss francs (you have to pay) (not for the raised shirt to ring bell slogan) and the eternal honor of the radicals.
7. The finger of the “Emperor of Rome”
Serie A matches from Rome season 2005/2006
In the mid-2000s, the Italian championship was one of the strongest in Europe, the whole world supported Italian teams, and the media eagerly captured every gesture of famous footballers. We have not received exact data on when Francesco Totti, the captain of Rome, began to suck ticks after recording, but we have reason to believe that this happened in the 2005-2006 season, after the birth of his son Cristian. just after. Initially, this gesture should be a reminder of how much the “Emperor of Rome” loved his children. Over time, Totti ended his career after playing in Rome for 25 years (!), and his celebration became part of popular culture. But we suspect that 99.9% of players who kick their heels after goals these days aren’t thinking about the kids at all.
8. Thank you, Abuela!
Leo Messi’s girlfriend Celia did not see her son at the height of fame, she died in 1998. However, Messi dedicates all his goals by raising his index fingers and aiming them towards the sky. Celia believed in his talent and regularly accompanied little Leo to training sessions, as Messi’s first team football ground was far from home. Furthermore, Abuela persuaded the coach of the Grandoli children’s team to put the child, who was not even five years old, in a game against older children. The coach got tired of arguing and put the kid at the end of the party. Incredibly, it was the same day that Leo wrote his first two odes for his first children’s team.
9. Patent Heart
English Premier League match, 2010
In 2013, Real Madrid player Gareth Bale showed his made heart and because of this he had to sue Justin Timberlake. Aunke Bell only started showing the symbol during goals celebrations in 2010, after his lawyers convinced the court that new player, Emma Rhys-Jones, had shown the sign at school.
10. El Salto de Cristiano
International Champions Cup, Real vs Chelsea 2013
More than a year before the new year, Cristiano Ronaldo used the “¡Siii!” Celebrated the goal by making a spectacular jump with a loud shout. The footballer started celebrating his success like this during an International Champions Cup match against Chelsea in August 2013. The party was celebrated in the United States; Madrid won easily 3–1 and Ronaldo showed his jump for the first time that day. Of course, the solo tour was added later, making the celebration all the more spectacular.
