African players have also left a mark with some special and memorable goal celebrations.

Who can forget the wiggling hips of Cameroon’s Roger Milla at the corner flag at the 1990 FIFA World Cup?

Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba once used the corner flag as a makeshift guitar during his Chelsea days, while Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has mastered his front flip athleticism.

Masandawana celebrations have become iconic moments of their own.

Daniel “Mambush” Mudau famously lifted a young ball boy on his shoulders when he scored a lethal strike against Orlando Pirates in a cup final;

Surprise Moriri raised an imaginary machine gun spraying bullets against Ronaldinho’s Barcelona FC; and who can forget Sandile Ndlovu’s signature AK-47 strut after converting one of his lethal strikes?

For this new generation of Mamelodi Sundowns players, supporters have been spoilt by Themba “Mshishi” Zwane who has celebrated in many entertaining styles.

Let’s not forget Gaston Sirino’s naughty Nedbank Cup Final celebration that saw him ‘feeding the chickens’ as the club won against Bloemfontein Celtic by his solitary goal. For years footballers have brought us entertainment through their goal celebrations.
