Vincent Aboubakar Hits Both Messi, Ronaldo Celebrations After Memorable Goal Against Brazil
- Cameroon striker Vincent Aboubakar was beyond himself with joy after scoring a stoppage-time goal against Brazil
- The goal did not take Cameroon through but made them the first African country to ever beat the South American giants
- The Al Nassr striker then did celebrations that were made known and popular by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo
Vincent Aboubakar once grabbed headlines at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar with a huge goal for his country against Brazil.
Aboubakar lobbed in a header in stoppage time to give Cameroon maximum points against the five-time World champions.
Even though it was a massively changed side from Tite, the win was a first on many fronts. It was the first time that an African country had beaten Brazil at the World Cup. It was also the first goal the Selecao had conceded in Qatar.
It wasn't just enough to take Cameroon through, as Switzerland vs Serbia match did not go as planned. But Aboubakar and his teammates celebrated the goal proudly that he got sent off for taking off his shirt.

Apart from taking off his shirt, Aboubakar hit a series of celebrations that have been made famous by arguably two of the best-ever footballers, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Indomitable Lions captain lifted his shirt up and showed his number 10 to the fans. Messi is synonymous with this celebration which he did on April 23rd 2017, after scoring a last-minute winner against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He then did the Ronaldo celebration of clasping your hands in the chest area and looking up as if you are meditating. Aboubakar was thereafter sent off by a smiling centre referee Ismail Efath for taking his shirt off.

Aboubakar's heroics against Brazil
Sports Brief had earlier reported that Cameroon captain Vincent Aboubakar delivered once again for his nation at the FIFA World Cup with a superb goal against Brazil.
Unfancied against the five-time World Champions, the Indomitable Lions headed into the game looking to rewrite history and qualify for the round of 16.
They contained Brazil for large parts of the game before Aboubakar turned in a header in stoppage time to send the players into a frenzy. Aboubakar was, however, sent off for taking off his shirt. He had initially been booked for a challenge on Gabriel Martinelli.
