England skipper Harry Maguire will recreate Temuri Ketsbaia’s iconic goal celebration if he scores against San Marino tonight, Paddy Power News can exclusively reveal.
The move comes after 28-year-old was roundly criticised for his goal celebration during England’s 5-0 victory over Albania.
Maguire opened the scoring with his head and ran to the corner flag cupping his hands to his ears in response to criticism of his recent performances for Manchester United.
Now sources claim the defender will recreate the angriest goal celebration in football history if he scores against San Marino.
After scoring a last minute winner for Newcastle United against Bolton at St James’ Park in 1998, Georgian international Ketsbaia attempted to strip naked before physically assaulting the advertising hoardings behind the goal.
It’s a scene Maguire is hoping to reproduce should he get on the scoresheet this evening.
‘Harry’s been kicking the sh*t out of the Wembley advertising hoardings in preparation’, the source told Paddy Power News.
‘He’s practiced the celebration a few times in training but he’s been having difficulty getting his shirt over his head’.
‘Well, you’ve seen the size of that loaf. He needs two passport photos to fit the thing in’.
‘One time he thought he was booting the hoardings but was kicking Jordan Pickford instead’.
‘Scoring the 6th goal of a 7-0 win over the worst team in the history of sport is the perfect way to shut up critics who’ve pointed out you’ve been personally culpable for 10 goals conceded by Manchester United this season’.
‘Harry’s got another couple of iconic celebrations lined-up should he score more than once’.
‘If he grabs a second, Harry will execute seven backflips à la Lomano LuaLua. If he nabs a hat trick, he’ll do a Crouchy robot.
Four and he’ll lift up his jersey to reveal a ‘Why always me?’ t-shirt’.
