England midfielder Jesse Lingard showed imagination in his celebration inspired by the computer game Fortnite after scoring against Panama on Sunday. The player’s “shoot dance” features as a taunt on the hugely popular game, which the England team are said to be big fans of.
4. Mbaye Niang ( Senegal vs Poland)
Hard to forget Senegal’s Mbaye Niang celebrating with his teammates after scoring his side’s second goal to beat Poland 2-1. Niang’s goal was his first for Senegal, with his first shot on target in a World Cup match.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal vs Morocco)
Super Eagles players didn't even show half of this Ronaldo's energy for his celebration.

We are getting used to the trademark celebration. The main part of the celebration is a Ronaldo trademark, the part where he leaps in the air, does a 180-degree turn, and does a little flourish with his arms as he lands with his back to the crowd as if to say “Behold! It is I, Cristiano Ronaldo! Look at the name on my back, and rejoice/despair!”
