JUST IN EPL: Jesse Lingard pays tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo with goal celebration
England midfielder, Jesse Lingard, has paid a tribute to his new Manchester United teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, after scoring in England World Cup qualifying win against Andorra on Sunday.
It was Lingard’s first goal for the Three Lions since 2018 and he pulled out the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration as a result.
The Manchester United star was not part of England team for the Euro 2020 but started against Andorra in the 2022 World Cup qualifier at Wembley.
Lingard scored in the 18th minute after Jude Bellingham’s drag back and pass released the forwards and Bukayo Saka’s deflected cross fell to him(Lingard) to fire home from around the penalty spot.
The Englishman then headed straight to the corner flag and pulled off a trademark Ronaldo ‘Siuuuuu’ celebration.
Fans of the Portuguese are well accustomed to Ronaldo’s jump and spin in the air as he shouts the phrase.
Lingard will soon be linking up with the legendary Portugal international in Manchester after the former Real Madrid superstar completed his return to Old Trafford from Juventus in a ground-breaking transfer this summer
