Soccer is a low scoring game, which means that when a goal is scored it is time to celebrate. This includes the goalscorer, and the adrenaline and excitement often causes hilarious, bizarre and eccentric celebrations. Sometimes their celebration will be pre-planned and well choreographed, many players see it as the perfect excuse to show some skin, some show off their gymnastic skills, whilst there have also been many who do little more than flail their arms around like a lunatic. The goal celebration can sometimes overshadow the goal itself, and over the years there have been dozens of iconic celebrations.
12. Robbie Keane
Robbie Keane has proven himself as a skilled, determined and hard working player at every team he has arrived at. He has been a prolific scorer at top teams around the world, including Inter Milan, Leeds United, Spurs (twice), Liverpool, Celtic and now L.A. Galaxy. Having scored so many goals, Keane has had a fair amount of practice celebrating. Despite this, his trademark goal celebration is far from the greatest demonstration of gymnastic ability (particularly in comparison to the likes of LuaLua), but this only adds to the charm of his comical celebration. It is usually comprised of a cartwheel and forward roll, before finishing with pistol fingers. Keane has been a fan favorite at every team he has played for, and his trademark goal celebration is certainly a contributing factor to this (along with his scoring ability and work rate).
