Jesse Lingard's 'JLingz' Celebration Is Now In FIFA 19

If you fancy busting a new celebration for every time you score past your mate on FIFA 19, Jesse Lingard's trademark 'JLingz' celebration is now featured in the game.

For a while now, the Manchester United and England star has been throwing his initials, 'JL', with his hands whenever he finds the net - including after scoring his first ever World Cup goal in the 6-1 thrashing of Panama back in June.

According to business publication City A.M, Lingard applied for four trademarks with UK Intellectual Property Office in June - three of which feature his nickname and then the other which is in relation to his signature goal celebration.

It's enabled him to sell merchandise such as t-shirts, hats and phone cases on his new website.

But EA Sports have been able to insert the sign into their latest edition in the FIFA franchise, with Lingard one of many players lucky enough to get their own celebration in FIFA 19.

It means FIFA players now have the option to perform two of Lingard's goal celebrations after the 'Milly Rock' dance was included when the game was released.

The celebration is in relation to the hip hop track from the rapper with the same name and became a viral trend.

Lingard debuted it as a celebration when he scored a brace during the 3-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates last season and turned the stadium into a dancefloor.

All you have to do is press 'A' on Xbox and 'circle' on PlayStation and Lingard starts flexing, prompting your opponent to start throwing controllers and rage-quitting in about 10 seconds.

You probably got aboard the 'JLingz' hype train during the World Cup, so now's your chance to do in in the virtual world.

We're just waiting for the Dele Alli challenge now...
