- Lo’eau LaBonta, a midfielder for Kansas City Current, amused her teammates and fans when she faked an injury after scoring a goal
- LaBonta then proceeded to twerk in one of the most hilarious goal celebrations ever
- Kei Kamara, a Sierra Leonean, was, however, booked for a similar celebration in 2016
Goal celebrations have become part and parcel of the game. Some have become extremely famous, like Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘siuuu’ or Gabriel Jesus’ ‘call me.’
One Lo’eau LaBonta introduced her own that left fans in stitches during a National Women’s League Soccer League match in the United States.
LaBonta plies her trade with Kansas City Current as a midfielder. She was part of the side that was facing Angel City in a closely-contested game.
Angel City had gone ahead in the 78th minute, but Kansas City Current had a chance to restore parity four minutes later when they were handed a penalty.
LaBonta stepped up to take the spot-kick, which she cooly dispatched to even the tie once again. But it was her celebration afterwards that left people talking.
The American ran towards the corner flag while clutching her hamstring. She looked to be in pain, like someone who had picked up an injury. However, this was all part of the plan as she quickly turned around and started twerking.
As Daily Star reports, some fans have called for the celebration to be added to the video game FIFA as soon as possible.
It is also important to note that LaBonta was not booked for her celebration. This is a sharp contrast to Sierra Leone star Kei Kamara who was yellow carded for a similar celebration in 2016.
