The football celebration has gone through many iterations since football began, but few can be as cocky as that of Romanian player Stefan Blanaru, who upon scoring a relatively routine goal, had the gumption to run away from his celebrating team mates, descend upon a half empty stand and applaud his own strike.
Have a look:
Romanian football is really amazing. Best ever. Absolutely brilliant. Blanaru scores for Sibiu then goes to the stands and APPLAUDS himself. Absolute genius. Have you seen a better goal celebration? pic.twitter.com/mLBSTqtWfa

Blanaru would go on to receive a yellow card for his cheeky celebration.
Football fans were enamoured by the 28-year-old's cockiness:
