Cambridge United players have been mocked on social media for their use of Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Siuuu' celebration after beating Newcastle United.
League One Cambridge, who are just four points above the relegation zone, provided the shock of the FA Cup third round, as Joe Ironside's 56th minute strike downed Premier League Newcastle.
Eddie Howe's side, with new signing Kieran Trippier in the starting line up, have still only won game this season, in all competitions.
The loss to Cambridge was their most embarrassing so far, but some fans were calling for the Us to give up their victory after their celebration.
The club posted a video of their players breaking out Ronaldo's famous 'Siuuu' jump in front of the fans after full time.
Well now you’ve spoilt it.— Martin Glynn (@martinglynn) January 9, 2022
As a toon fan I had respect for the way they went about their business yesterday...but I hope they get man city in the next round and get absolutely battered after this. Embarrassing🤦— Kj (@k30evc) January 9, 2022
@LaurenceNew can’t believe they’ve been kicked out the cup for this. Correct decision actually.— Ady (@Adyslough) January 9, 2022

Whist it's apparently okay for a stadium full of Manchester United fans to do the shouting bit of Ronaldo's celebration when he scores for them, it's been dubbed cringey by many on the internet when Cambridge players did the same.,
In their defence they've just pulled off the biggest victory in their careers, and no doubt made Newcastle feel even worse about themselves.
Trippier was part of a full strength team that Howe sent out, just over a day after he moved to the north east following a move from Atletico Madrid.
The former Tottenham Hotspur right back had claimed he made the move from La Liga champions to Premier League relegation battle because he enjoys a challenge.
The loss to Cambridge just proves how big a challenge it will be.
