We might have just seen the best celebration of the season

The season has only started, but this will take some beating

The season has only started, but this will take some beating.

Nelson Oliveira scored an important goal for Norwich City today, and celebrated it in some style. The Norwich striker was pissed off about being omitted from the stating line up, and made sure his manager Daniel Farke knew about it.

Oliveira collected a fantastic lofted pass from Wes Hoolahan, another substitute in the game, to level the score against Fulham, making it 1-1.

Hoolahan found himself in possession about 40 yards out, he jinked his way past an incoming defender to create space then played a delightful defence-splitting through ball to Oliveira who provided the finish the pass deserved. Then came the celebration.

The Portuguese striker ran away pointing to Canaries boss Farke then whipped off his top, ran over to the gaffer and showed him the name on the back of the jersey.

Farke explained after the game that he was happy with the emotion Oliveria showed, as long as it signifies that he really wants to start.
