For England, Jesse Lingard has performed the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration.
The midfielder has scored for the Three Lions this evening, putting his country ahead of Andorra at Wembley Stadium.
And he celebrated by paying respect to Cristiano Ronaldo, whose return to Manchester United was confirmed last week, with the Portuguese star signing a two-year contract after leaving Juventus.
Lingard looked up to Ronaldo as a kid, and there is vintage film from his United days showing Ronaldo demonstrating the ideal stepover to then academy player Lingard.
The pair will now work together as United senior stars following Ronaldo’s arrival during the summer transfer window.
As you can see in the video above, after Lingard scored for England today, he paid tribute by pulling off the famed ‘siu’ celebration of his hero.
United fans will be hoping to see more of the same from Lingard this season with the midfielder having returned following an impressive loan spell at West Ham United last term.
