The publishers behind FIFA 14, EA Sports, have this week unveiled a new trailer depicting the goal celebrations you will be able to roll out after scoring a goal in the upcoming football simulation title. Celebrations featured in-game include a rather baffling pat-a-cake dance between Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil, West Ham players doing their best impressions of a chicken, and AC Milan stars performing some sort of a bum dance. But not all of them are suspect, and here, we go through the 5 Best Goal Celebrations found in FIFA 14.
5. Lionel Messi - "Point To Sky"
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi's trademark "point to sky" goal celebration features in FIFA 14 and makes No.5 on our list. The Argentine wizard has had plenty to celebrate in recent times, scoring a resounding 46 La Liga goals in just 32 appearances for Barça last season, helping them to the title. He's also the face of FIFA 14, appearing on the cover alongside Gareth Bale. And as such, he is the highest-ranked player on the latest iteration of FIFA for yet another year running, just about edging out Cristiano Ronaldo. To replicate his famous goal celebration, you need to hit the button combination of LB + B on Xbox 360 consoles. Click "Next" to see four other amazing celebrations.
