Fans think Achraf Hakimi did a tribute to Sergio Ramos with the 'waddle' celebration after Morocco dumped Spain out of the World Cup.
Morocco produced a shock in the tournament by knocking out Spain on penalties, winning the shootout 3-0 at the Education City Stadium on Tuesday.
Hakimi scored the winning penalty, converting an ice-cold spot-kick before hitting the 'waddle' celebration, which has become a viral trend by Jaylen Waddle who performs the same move after scoring touchdowns for Miami Dolphins.
And fans online are convinced the Moroccan international's celebration was a nod to Ramos, who not only does the same celebration but was also omitted from Spain's World Cup squad.
Did Hakimi do the 'waddle' celebration in tribute to Ramos? Well, fans online certainly reckon so.
One Twitter user wrote: "With his Panenka, Hakimi not only knocked Spain out of the World Cup, but he also celebrated like Sergio Ramos. A suitable response to Enrique, who did not select Ramos despite the fact that he started all of PSG's games and was undefeated in all of them."
A second tweeted: "Born and raised in Madrid, called Sergio Ramos the best defender itw after he was omitted from Spain's World Cup squad and went on to score Ramos' signature Panenka & do his special celebration after knocking Spain out..."
A third added: "No way not only did Hakimi knocked out Spain and he also done a tribute to Sergio Ramos."
A fourth commented: "OMDS I just realized that’s the celebration Hakimi does with Ramos all the time."
A fifth said: "Hakimi doing the Sergio Ramos celebration is the ultimate sh*thousery."
Another wrote: "Hakimi not only knocked Spain out with a Panenka but also made a point to Enrique for not picking Ramos to be in the squad by doing his penguin celebration."
Ramos' exclusion from Luis Enrique's team came as a slight surprise considering the 36-year-old's form at Paris Saint-Germain. He's played 20 games in all competitions, helping his side to an unbeaten start in the league.
The North African country, meanwhile, face Portugal on Saturday with a spot in the semi-finals up for grabs.
