Is this the greatest goal celebration ever?

Japanese midfielder Hidetoshi Waku commemorated his goal in the Tallinn derby in Estonia on Monday with a brilliant bowling ball celebration with the rest of his Nomme Kalju team-mates.

The 31-year-old opened the scoring in the 21st minute of a 1-1 draw with local rivals Flora, and proceeded to pick the ball out of the net to take part in a pre-meditated routine.

Waku's team-mates were obviously well aware of what was happening, and formed an orderly triangle down by the corner flag, waiting for the goalscorer to bowl the ball which knocked over the nine-player formation.

The scenes of jubilation were short-lived, however, as Nomme Kalju were unable to hold on to their one-goal lead, conceding an injury time equaliser to ensure a share of the spoils.
