Ghana forward Osman Bukari took to Twitter to defend his decision to do the ‘Siuu’ celebration in their Group H World Cup opening 3-2 defeat on Thursday.

The West African nation was trailing 3-1 at Stadium 974 in Doha as substitute Bukari pulled a goal back in the 83rd minute to set up a nervy ending.

While enjoying the moment, the 23-year-old decided to replicate Ronaldo’s iconic celebration.

Bukari has also been criticised on social media for doing the celebration while Ghana was behind in the match.

The Red Star Belgrade winger has responded to those critics.

Ghana almost got an equaliser in the dying minutes of the match when Inaki Williams hid behind Portugal goalkeeper Diogo Costa, but slipped as he snatched the ball off the goalkeeper.
