Ghana’s 3-2 loss to Portugal threw up a number of headlines.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial penalty and an apparent trip on Inaki Williams to stop him from scoring in the final minute are just a couple of them.
And despite coming on in the 77th minute, Black Stars winger Osman Bukari ensured that he would head home with a share of the spotlight.
Bukari scored Ghana’s second of the game with an impressive header in the 89th minute and capped it off with Ronaldo’s patented ‘siuu’ celebration, while the Portugal forward watched on from the bench.
Portugal eventually held on for the win but Bukari’s celebration had sparked a massive debate on social media.

While some people were amused by Bukari, others were upset considering Ghana were still down by a goal, with time running out.
Even Ronaldo himself seemed annoyed by the act.

The only thing Bukari was thinking when going to the World Cup is to score and do Ronaldo’s Siuuuu celebration and he did against Portuga with his idol Ronaldo playing l! Dream always come true. 🤝
