Jesse Lingard Did Cristiano Ronaldo's Celebration After Scoring For England

Jesse Lingard scored his first goal for England in nearly three years, as they took the lead against Andorra, and he broke out Cristiano Ronaldo's signature celebration.

Lingard narrowly missed out on Gareth Southgate's squad for the summer's Euros, after his incredible end of season form for West Ham United got him back in contention.

He was called up to the squad for the World Cup qualifiers this week despite playing just four minutes for Manchester United so far in the new campaign.

On Sunday evening, he earned his latest cap for the country and opened the scoring against Andorra in the 18th minute, slotting home after Bukayo Saka's cross.

It was incredibly his first international goal since November 2018 and, with the recent news he'd be teaming up with Ronaldo at United, there was only one way to celebrate.

The forward combined his signature 'JL' hand gesture with the six time Ballon d'Or winner's famous 'SIUUUUUU' celebration, in a way only Lingard could.

Lingard, who reportedly told West Ham he didn't want to move back their this summer, was one of three players one pundit thought needed to leave Old Trafford after the arrival of Ronaldo.

However the 28-year-old does have a strong connection with Real Madrid's all time top goalscorer, having been a very young player the first time the Portugal star was at United.

If there was any doubt how much the England international idolises his new teammate, it's all gone after Sunday's celebration.
