Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba Turned The Wakanda Salute Into a Celebration

The Black Panther reference is the latest in Lingard's long list of celebrations.

February 26th 2018

Fresh from coming off the bench, Jesse Lingard sealed Man United’s victory over Chelsea with a well-placed header to score his 8th league goal of the season.

Lingard has become renowned for his celebrations – having dabbed, Shmoney danced and Milly Rocked in recent games – and he continued his antics after scoring the winner yesterday with a Black Panther-inspired #WakandaForever salute.

Wakanda is the much-loved mythical nation in the record-breaking Black Panther film, which has smashed Box Office records across the world.
