Everybody can remember mimicking their idol’s celebration after scoring a goal as a child and it seems Gerard Deulofeu hasn’t grown out of the habit.

The Everton star scored a neat free-kick while away on international duty with Spain’s Under-21 team and proceeded to celebrate like Cristiano Ronaldo.

Deulefeu didn’t copy the Real Madrid man’s traditional ‘jump, spin and spread both arms’ celebration. Instead, he went for the ‘keep calm’ one, as seen when Ronaldo scored against Barcelona in 2012. Scroll down the page to watch the youngster’s imitation.

Deulofeu might have hoped to break into Spain's first team by now, especially given his glowing reputation during his time at Barcelona.

But loan spells to Everton and Sevilla followed (Marca included him in their Worst XI for last season) before Everton made his move permanent last summer.

Watch Deulofeu's goal and celebration

Yet the winger has been reduced to 17 starts in all competitions, and he hasn’t completed 90 minutes for Roberto Martinez’s team since January 24.

The Spanish game is probably a better fit for a player of Deulofeu’s skill set but Cristiano spent six seasons developing his skills in England, and look at how he turned out.

At 22, there is still time for Deulofeu to fulfil his potential and as Spain captain, he is the leader of La Roja’s next generation.

Will Deulofeu go to Euro 2016? Have your say in the comments section below!
