Team Try To Imitate Balotelli's Selfie Celebration, It Ends In Disaster

Team Try To Imitate Balotelli's Selfie Celebration, It Ends In Disaster

Last month Mario Balotelli broke the internet after scoring a bicycle kick for Marseille against Saint-Etienne last night.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool striker grabbed his iPhone off the cameraman and recorded a video for his Instagram story, with several of his teammates joining in.

Though it should be noted that Balotelli wasn't the first man to celebrate with a selfie as his compatriot Francesco Totti exactly that following his glorious acrobatic volleyed equaliser in the Rome derby back in 2015.

However, the latest selfie celebration effort over in Morocco was an absolute shambles. Having just scored an absolute worldie, Youssoufia Berrechid's Mohammed El Fakih set about recreating Balotell's antics and got his teammates onboard.

But it did not go as planned. For starters the post didn't even upload to 'the gram' and then the referee allowed the game to restart with most of the Youssoufia players off the pitch and out of position.

Opponents Mouloudia Oujda capitalised in a big way, winning a penalty that was converted to ensure they earned a share of the points. Embarrassing scenes really.

Still, we're hoping that EA Sports add it to the list of celebrations in time for FIFA 20, with Balotelli already putting the feelers out.

Just imagine the pure scenes of getting your player to whip out his phone and take a selfie when you've just bagged a last-gasp rebound winner? Incredible shithousery.

Paul Pogba's 'Billy dance' is on the game, as is Jesse Lingard's trademark 'JLingz' celebration but FIA is in need of something a little different celebration-wise. Make it happen, EA.
