The MLS has already brought up one of the best goal celebrations of 2014 courtesy of Dom Dwyer's 'selfie celebration' earlier this season but now New England Revolution's young star Diego Fagundez may have just gone one better.

The 19-year-old Uruguayan was on target on Sunday as the Revolutions took on the Chicago Fire - the youngster levelling the scores at 1-1 with a simple header from close range.

And whilst the Revolution, complete with new star signing Jermaine Jones, went on to win the game 2-1 it was Fagundez' celebration following his equaliser that stole the headlines.

Pretty unique right? We might need to explain a few things before we move on.

Those guys dressed in colonial military gear and wielding what look like antique muskets?Don't worry they haven't snuck in past the stadium security, they are the real life representation of New England's 'Revolution' monicker.

The trio of Minutemen are regulars at the Revolution's home games at Gillette Stadium as a real-life reminder of the American Revolution from which the franchise takes its name and fire their guns after every goal from their franchise.

But we are pretty sure this is the first time that one of the players has taken the opportunity to jump over the advertising boards and get in on the act.

Judging by its popularity we can see this one catching on.

MLS - taking things one step further

Of course weird and wonderful goal celebrations are nothing new. Whether it is the latest choreographed dance move or an iconic celebration used by one player for his entire career fans around the world have been exposed to it all.

But then there is Major League Soccer.

On top of Fagundez's musket men gun salute and Dwyer's incorporation of the selfie there are a number of other crazy scenes that play out in the US domestic league almost on a weekly basis.

From Portland Timbers' mascot 'Timber Joey' sawing through a giant tree each time his team grabs a goal to Thierry Henry taking over the cameraman's duties at the Red Bulls arena MLS is certainly the place to go to see the weird and wonderful.

The likes of Kaka, Frank Lampard, and David Villa will have to get their thinking caps on in order to keep up appearances when they make their league bows in 2015.
