Ronaldo’s trademark goal celebration was again seen in action at the expense of Liverpool.

Nigerian striker Daniel Udoh has joined the ever-growing list of athletes to mimic Cristiano Ronaldo’s trademark celebration.

The 25-year-old took a leaf out of Ronaldo’s book after stunning the Anfield crowd on Sunday by firing Shrewsbury Town into a shock 27th-minute lead against Liverpool in an FA Cup third-round tie.

Sadly for the League One side, however, Udoh’s moment of glory didn’t last long.

17-year-old Kaide Gordon equalized with his first senior goal, only seven minutes later. Fabinho’s penalty then handed Liverpool a half-time lead, before the Brazilian and his compatriot Roberto Firmino added two more goals in the second half. The goals sealed a 4-1 comeback win for the Reds.

It ended any hope Shrewsbury had of pulling off a miracle FA Cup win in a weekend rocked by shocks and upsets.

Ronaldo will hope to show Udoh how his goal celebration is done when Manchester United take on Aston Villa on Monday. For match details and betting tips, visit the link here.
