On April 13, 2024, Atletico de Madrid celebrated a 3-1 win over Girona FC at Civitas Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, Spain. The victory saw them close the gap to the top three teams in LaLiga, with Antoine Griezmann being the standout performer with two second-half goals. Griezmann’s celebration after his second goal was notable, as he recreated the famous Siphiwe Tshabalala dance. The dance was made famous by the former Bafana Bafana star after he scored the opening goal at the 2010 FIFA World Cup against Mexico.

Following the game, Griezmann revealed that he had decided to perform the dance as a result of his son’s request. He explained that his son had asked him to do a dance if he scored, so he invited his teammate, Rodrigo de Paul, to join him in the celebration. The tweet from Atletico Universe captured the moment, with Griezmann and De Paul hitting the Siphiwe Tshabalala dance as part of their goal celebration.
