Sheikh Morsalin, a young striker, performed the CR7 celebration after scoring an important equalizing goal for his team during a FIFA Friendly match against Afghanistan on Thursday night at the Kings Arena.
After scoring a goal against Afghanistan, Sheikh Morsalin celebrates by taking photographs with his adoring followers.
The Bangladesh No. 7 scored his third goal in seven international outings, but yesterday was the first time he executed the CR7 celebration after his team’s 1-1 draw against Afghanistan. Bangladesh has played seven international matches.
The forward for the Bashundhara Kings explained his CR7 celebration after scoring his third goal for his country after he reached that milestone.
Since I was a kid, Cristiano Ronaldo has always been one of my favorite athletes. Because of that, I’ve always had a secret desire to wear jersey number 7. Morsalin told the official broadcasters T-Sports after the game, “I thought if I scored, I would do a CR7 celebration.”
Morsalin, who had blown a golden opportunity in the first match, which resulted in a scoreless draw, scored in the 62nd minute of this encounter by tapping in Bishwanath Ghosh’s cross from the right side of the box.
Prior to that, Morsalin had scored in matches against Maldives and Bhutan while the SAFF Championship was being held in India a few months ago.
