We have seen some great goals already in the 2012 Euro’s, so what better time to look at our top 5 goal celebrations. Many believe Football is one of the greatest, and oldest sports in the world. It is only fitting that the best sport in the world has some of the greatest goal celebrations. Below is a collection of what I think are the top 5 celebrations in recent football history.
For all you out there playing in the GO Mammoth London Football Leagues, this is for you!!
5. Nani’s Full
Number five goes to Nani’s full (360 back layout), that he pulls off during the match against Liverpool. Not only has he yet again just completed a full out sprint, he then goes on to complete a high level gymnastic flip. It is one thing to flip with out a spin, but add a spin, and that flip becomes completely different, and much more difficult. If any members of your team in your London Football League can complete this, send us a video and we will post it!!
4. The Bike
Creativity greatly factors into the worth of a celebration, and it seams that the boys on the Stjarnan club team have that down. This team is very good at coordinating themselves and building things as their goal celebration. In this clip the team decides to build a bike, of which one player is completely suspended in the air. It is a clear pictorial image and given the personality of this team, makes perfect sense. What could you and your team build?
3. Paul Gascoigne
The antics of the infamous dentist chair were well publicised in the media, Gazza thought he’d go one better and share it with the world. I’m not going to spend too much time waxing lyrical about his wonder goal, but, I bet Colin Hendry is still aimlessly looking around trying to work out where Gazza has put the ball! The celebration itself was, in a sense, the most ironic celebration ever. If by some strange occurrence you don’t know the context then it may seem a strange celebration indeed. But actually it was poking fun at the English Tabloids, who weeks earlier had photographed Gazza, Sheringham & McManaman on a drunken night out, downing drinks from a dentist’s chair. The tabloids slated the players, saying it was embarrassing and Gazza should be dropped. So, naturally Gazza responded by scoring one of the greatest goals of all time, and yes, recreating the now infamous dentist’s chair.
2. Gone Fishing
Yet again the ever so creative Stjarnan club creates an excellent goal celebration. Technically its not too hard. I bet your London football team could even do it. All you have to do is have a fake cameraman, and five to six team members holding the fish. That’s right the fish! (The trickiest part of this celebration.) If you pay attention, Jóhann Laxdal has to flounder his way across the pitch, so that his team can scoop him up. This is no easy task. Have you ever tried to fake a spasm and move in a given direction? It is very difficult to accomplish. When this celebration is done all together, it is pure comedy.
1. Toshihiro Aoyamo
This one had to win (may not be the best ever goal celebration), but, when you score a goal from beyond the centre field line then you deserve recognition. You also deserve to celebrate however you want, and that is exactly what Toshihiro Aoyama did. The amount of power and the accuracy to make a shot of this calibre is astounding. What makes an entire team celebration is worthy of this standalone act. It’s a spin off of the “traditional” bowing celebration, except you end up with a split at the end, which is nearly impossible to get a strike off of. In this case, nothing is impossible for Toshihiro and he easily knocks down the final two “pins,” as easily as he put in that shot.
Judging the top 5 football goal celebrations is always a difficult matter, and I am sure there are a million and one video’s that you may believe are better, and that I have never seen.
Please post the video’s below and prove me wrong. You can even suggest your top 5 best goal celebrations of all time….
