There are various ways footballers choose to mark that magnificent moment when a goal has been scored.

Maybe they favour the same trademark celebration, ranging from somersaults, shadow boxing the corner flag to a more sedate one arm raised in the air.

How about a little jig next to the corner flag, a robot dance in the penalty area or maybe roaring so loudly it looks like the eyes are going to pop out of your head.

Some choose to kick lumps out advertising hoardings, others decide to run down to other end of the stadium to enrage opposition fans, while tickles some player's fancy to swing a golf in the same manner they attacked a teammate days earlier in a hotel room.

Take a glide through the photo gallery above, as we pick out some of the classic moments from the world of football goal celebrations.
