A cheeky rival boldly copied Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous ‘Siu’ celebration against Portugal at the World Cup – and the football legend didn’t seem to enjoy it.
Osman Bukari found the net late in Ghana’s 3-2 defeat by the Europeans and promptly repeated the pirouette Ronaldo himself had performed earlier in the game.

Ronaldo was on the bench at the time, but with multiple cameras still trained on him, his disgust was evident.
How much of this reaction was due to Bukari’s celebration seems unclear.
But the timing of the live broadcast suggested Ronaldo was as put off by the Ghanaian’s jump as he was by the goal.
Ronaldo, of course, had the last laugh as Portugal celebrated their first win in a World Cup opener since 2006.
Ronaldo had opened the scoring from a penalty after earning a penalty in the 64th minute.
The goal made the 37-year-old the first man to score in five World Cups – a feat previously only achieved by Brazil women’s superstar Marta.
“It was a beautiful moment,” said Ronaldo.
“We won my fifth world championship. That was very important. The world record makes me very proud.”
Ronaldo was named official man of the match in the 3-2 win over Ghana, his first appearance since leaving Manchester United this week.
“This week we closed the chapter. The rest doesn’t matter,” he said.
There’s more to come…
