Burnley mascot dabs before clash with Southampton

Football fans have had to endure a long two weeks without Premier League football, as England produced two very uninspiring performances against Malta and Slovenia.

So, surely they would all be eagerly anticipating Super Sunday.

Well, it may have been ‘Super Sunday’ by name but it certainly wasn’t ‘Super Sunday’ by nature.

With no disrespect to the four teams involved, Middlesbrough vs. Watford and Southampton vs. Burnley didn’t exactly make you want to stay at home all day and watch 180 minutes of football.

Watford may have earned three points against Middlesbrough thanks to a brilliant strike from Jose Holebas, but the two matches generally lacked top quality.

However, one moment of Super Sunday did make us smile. Ahead of Burnley’s visit to Southampton, a mascot made sure his parents saw him with a moment of hilarity.

Like it or not, the ‘dab’ is going nowhere.

And Burnley’s mascot make everyone notice him as the players took to the St. Marys’ pitch.

Take a look at his performance:

Well played or cringeworthy? Twitter couldn't quite decide...

Unfortunately for the mascot, he could only watch on and his side fell to a 3-1 defeat to Southampton on the south coast.

Three goals in 16 second-half minutes from Charlie Austin (brace) and Nathan Redmond put the game beyond Sean Dyche's side. However, Sam Vokes did pull a consolation goal back with just under 20 minutes remaining.

We bet the confident mascot wasn't dabbing at the end of the 90 minutes but we love him for playing up to the camera when he had his chance.
