Bukari, as he celebrated with his teammates looked stupefied while Ronaldo watched from the sidelines.
“Cameraman deserves an Oscar for immediately capturing Ronnie’s reaction which is a reminder that some things are more important than winning. Like Trademark Cellies,” A Twitter user posted.
Bukari scored a goal that brought the score up to 2-3. However, it wasn’t enough to beat Portugal.
Bukari was mocked for using Ronaldo’s famous move against him during the match.
One Tweet by a Twitter user, “NOT BUKARI DOING THE SIUUUU IN FRONT OF RONALDO.
“Bukari waited for that SIU to be found for many months.” One Twitter user shared the following.
Someone else said: “Bukari was able to celebrate the siu at 3-2 down in 89 minutes. This guy isn’t serious.”
Ronaldo started the “Siu” celebratory move in 2013 and it has now become a calling card for the 37-year-old.
“When we would win, everyone would say ‘siiiii’ and so I started to say it. I don’t know why, it was natural,” Ronaldo spoke in 2019. “I was in the USA and we played against Chelsea and I don’t know where this is coming from, the celebration. The goal was scored by me and I didn’t even know it. To be completely honest, it was natural.”
Despite Bukari taking a page from Ronaldo’s book, Ronaldo finished the match strong by setting a historic record of being the first male player to score in five different World Cups.
