  • Information


Football celebrations are a vital part of the beautiful game.

Gooaal! The Joy of Football Celebrations is all about what happens in the exhilarating moments after a goal.

Where once a firm handshake was the norm - with a brief head nod if it had been a really good goal - today we see backflips, finger-pointing, ear-cuffing, badge-bashing, knee-sliding, camera-mugging, thumb-sucking - and sometimes something entirely original and funny.

Often, the celebration is instinctive and all the better for it, but others are carefully planned and designed to make a point.

Some are controversial or political, and an unfortunate few have resulted in injuries.

Peter Crouch, Wayne Rooney, Paul Gascoigne, Jurgen Klinsmann, Jamie Vardy, Raheem Sterling, Alex Morgan, Bebeto, finger-wagging Jimmy Bullard, golf club-waving Craig Bellamy, line-sniffing Robbie Fowler - all of them are among the 200-plus celebrations featured in this book.

You'll discover exactly what went on - and why.
