AS GOAL CELEBRATIONS go, this one certainly beats the tar out of anything Facundo Sava and Jonas Gutierrez could come up with.

Marcello Matrone is a Brazilian who plays for Finnish third division side HIK.

He has become known for his touchline impersonations of Lady Gaga, Shakira and the late Amy Winehouse after scoring for his side, and his latest transformation left his adoring audience in raptures.

Having scored against local rivals Honka, Matrone ran to the advertising hoarding before donning a bandana and wig, producing a mop and miming along to Guns ‘N’ Roses’ 1980s hit ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine.’

Yep, he channelled the lunatic styling of one W. Axl Rose. To perfection. Or perhaps not. Judge for yourselves.

His Shakira is better again, by the way.
