When the soccer celebration fails

In sports, a goal celebration is the practice of celebrating the scoring of a goal. The celebration is normally performed by the goalscorer, and may involve their teammates, the manager or coaching staff or the supporters of the team.

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has revealed the reason why a clutch of Premier League players celebrate scoring a goal by making an 'A' with their fingers. ... And Maddison has explained that it is a nod to a WhatsApp group chat containing several Premier League players.

Soccer players put the ball under their shirt to symbolize and celebrate the fact that a loved one is pregnant. They do this to honor the person and share their joy with all who are watching. For example, Lionel Messi did it in 2012 after scoring a goal for Argentina against Ecuador.

CELEBRATION OF A GOAL. Players can celebrate when a goal is scored, but the celebration must not be excessive; choreographed celebrations are not encouraged and must not cause excessive time-wasting. Leaving the field of play to celebrate a goal is not a cautionable offence but players should return as soon as possible.
