"Is this the best goal celebration ever?" asks the World of Sport blog on Yahoo Sports. Are we suprised it is from an Icelandic team - probably not!


If this video is anything to go by, goal celebrations have certainly come a long way since Roger Milla wiggled his hips down by the corner flag.
 
No longer is a mere dance good enough for some players, as Icelandic top flight side Stjarnan proved in their game against Fylkir at the weekend.
With the game seemingly heading for a 1-1 draw, the home side were awarded a penalty in the dying moments. Up stepped Halldór Orri Björnsson to score with a delightful chip over the keeper.
While it was undeniably a fine strike, if some way off the best penalty ever. But the goal will be remembered for what followed - a beautifully choreographed manoeuvre in which Björnsson cast an imaginary fishing rod before 'reeling in' team-mate Daníel Laxdal.
The 'fish' was then picked up by several members of the team and held aloft as if he were a trophy, while another team-mate 'took a photo' for posterity.
Stjarnan held on to win the match 2-1.
