Stunning goal is celebrated WWE-style

World of Sport

Angel Reyna scored a genuinely superb goal for Pachuca against Cruz Azul in Mexico - but then capped it with a celebration that was even better.

After just three minutes of the Mexican Liga MX clash, Reyna smashed in a simply wonderful 40-yard half-volley that screamed into the top corner of the net.

The striker, on loan from Monterrey, then teamed up with team-mate Dario Carreno for a celebration that more resembled something you would see in a WWE ring as opposed to a football pitch.

We are reliably informed by our wrestling expert that the move in question is called a "Hurricanrana". If we're wrong on that, no doubt you'll feel free to let us know in the comments box below.

Pachuca went on to win the match 2-1 with Ecuadorian international Christian Suarez getting the winner in the 77th minute.

Pachuca currently lie fifth in the league table after seven matches.

You can watch the video of the goal and the celebration above - and make sure you watch right to the end to catch the full slow-mo replay of the celebration.
