While New England Revolution missed out on the MLS play-offs, striker Kei Kamara gave fans something to celebrate on Sunday.
Kamara scored in New England’s 3-0 win over Montreal Impact in the final round of the regular season – dubbed ‘Decision Day’ – but was penalised for his unusual celebration.
The enigmatic striker completed the scoring in the 71st minute, prompting a ‘twerk’ – a popular dance move involving thrusting hip movements and a low squatting stance.

But the referee was not impressed, showing a yellow card to the 32-year-old, whose dance moves would have made Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown proud.
Brown received a $6,076 fine for his end-zone celebration in Pittsburgh’s season-opening NFL win over the Washington Redskins last month.
For what it is worth, Kamara’s goal was impressive from a tight angle.
