Ghana forward Osman Bukari took to Twitter to defend his decision to do the ‘Siuu’ celebration in their Group H World Cup opening 3-2 defeat on Thursday.
The West African nation was trailing 3-1 at Stadium 974 in Doha as substitute Bukari pulled a goal back in the 83rd minute to set up a nervy ending.
While enjoying the moment, the 23-year-old decided to replicate Ronaldo’s iconic celebration.
Bukari has also been criticised on social media for doing the celebration while Ghana was behind in the match.
