Soccer fans are being given the chance to come up with their own goal celebrations - like their heroes who dive, dance or simply prance around after scoring.
Food firm Pringles is holding a competition this summer for supporters to show how they would mark scoring an important goal.
To launch the contest, Pringles surveyed 2,000 fans to find their favourite goal celebrations, with England player Stuart Pearce coming top for "going psycho" after converting a penalty against Spain at the Euro 1996 tournament.
Other favourites included German star Jurgen Klinsman diving to the ground, Paul Gascoigne pretending to sit on a dentist's chair and French forward Eric Cantona puffing his chest out.after scoring a goal.
Modern-day favourites included Peter Crouch of Spurs doing a robot dance, Manchester United's Nani flipping over and Ireland's Robbie Keane firing pistols.
