Congo goalkeeper delights crowd with bumshuffle celebration

World of Sport

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations got underway on Saturday, and it took 210 minutes and two days of football before the first goal of the tournament was scored in the match between hotly tipped Ghana and DR Congo.

The Leopards earned a surprise 2-2 draw against the Black Stars in Port Elizabeth, thanks to a 68th-minute penalty from Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani.

The Congo players performed an impressive synched goal celebration, but the star of the show was goalkeeper Robert Kidiaba, who did his trademark ecstatic bumshuffle.

Okay, so it's not the first time that Kidiaba has done the celebration, and may not be the first time you've seen it. But somehow we always seem to forget it between African Cups of Nations - and each time it gives us a little thrill to see it afresh.
