Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s trademark “Siu” goal celebration fever has gripped the National Football League as Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers showcased the former’s icon move after scoring a goal during a fixture of the mega event.

The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver is not the first, and probably will not be the last, to turn to five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo for inspiration, reported goal.com.

Flowers lined up a penalty against a team-mate acting as a goalkeeper before wheeling away in CR7 mode.

Flowers — a Fort Lauderdale native — was taken by the Ravens with the 22nd pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

It is pertinent to mention here that soccer celebrations in NFL circles are becoming a regular theme, with Manchester City striker Erling Haaland having already seen his meditation routine emulated by Allen Lazard during his visit to London with the Green Bay Packers in 2022.
