Fortnite dances to electric chains: The top 10 World Cup celebrations


Now that the World Cup is over, fans from across the globe have been discussing their favourite matches, goals and performances from the 32 countries involved in Russia

However, Pringles have teamed up sports analyst Dr. Garry Gelade, formally of the University of Cambridge, to show supporters what has been rated as the best goal celebration at the tournament. 

Dr. Gelade has created the world’s first formula for the perfect goal celebration, which takes into account theatrics, goal gravity and reaction with a score out of 100. With this formula, the sports analyst is able to deem the top 10 celebrations from the World Cup in Russia.

10. Artem Dzyuba – Russia – 67/100

Artem Dzyuba scored a penalty for Russia to send their round of 16 tie against Spain into extra time and then a penalty shootout – which the hosts eventually won to book their spot in the last eight. 

The imposing forward’s passionate salute to the home crowd was really an iconic moment and deserves a place on this list.

8. Kylian Mbappe – France – 67/100

The World Cup in Russia was the stage where Kylian Mbappe really announced himself as a world-class striker.

The 19-year-old became the second teenager ever to score in a World Cup final after his long-range effort all but confirmed Les Bleus as champions. 

The Paris Saint-Germain attacker sprinted away towards the corner flag before being mobbed by his team-mates.

7. Kim Young-Gwon – South Korea – 68/100

South Korea needed to beat former world champions Germany to have any chance of making the knockout rounds.

With the game still goalless late on, Kim Young-Gwon was in the right place at the right time to stab home his effort past a helpless Manuel Neuer in net.

The South Korean defender wheeled away in celebration before a VAR review confirmed his goal was legitimate. South Korea went on to knock the Germans out of the competition but failed to make it through themselves.
