Nottingham Forest attacker Sam Surridge was left red-faced after he mocked Cristiano Ronaldo, only to see his goal ruled out for offside.
Morgan Gibbs-White looked to have played Surridge through, one-on-one, when the Englishman ruled the ball into the far corner. Surridge wheeled off to the corner, thinking he'd levelled the scoring, and he whipped out Ronaldo's new celebration.
However, VAR intervened, and replays showed that Surridge's knee was just offside – and the goal was chalked off. VAR's intervention has led fans to joke that even Ronaldo's celebration is cursed.

One fan tweeted: "Blud made the Ronaldo celebration and the goal got ruled out!! Nahhh even the celebration is also cursed ffs!!"
"They really did the Ronaldo celebration in front of Manchester United just for the goal to get disallowed," a second added. While a third added: "That rat deserved that goal to be ruled out. How dare he does the Ronaldo celebration!"
And a fourth tweeted: "Ronaldo is out of Europe but his new celebration is still there. GOAT for a reason!"
