Assisat Oshoala’s goal celebration against Australia sparked a lot of online conversation yesterday, as we take a look at her colleagues who have done same in the past.
Taking off shirts to celebrate a goal is not a new phenomenon in female football, infact, it is an age long tradition, although it happens on rare occasions.
Let’s take a look at few stars who couldn’t control their emotions after scoring:
1) Brandi Chastain
Chastain scored the winning penalty in the Women’s world cup final in 1999, as she ripped off her shirt in controversial goal celebration.
2) Valentina Giacinti
The AC Milan captain removed her jersey, after the scored four goals against local rivals, Inter Milan in 2021.
3) Sam Kerr
Just recently, the Chelsea forward did the same celebration, after the Australian scored an injury time goal against Aston Villa in the league last year.
Removing your shirt remains an offence according to the laws of the game, as it earns one a booking.
