FA Community Shield: Jesse Lingard kicked off Manchester United's win with a great goal but ruined it with a cringey celebration


Jesse Lingard kicked off Manchester United's Community Shield win against Leicester City with a fantastic solo goal.

His impressive dribble straight through Leicester's defence put his team 1-0 up in the most exciting moment of the first half, and everyone was singing his praises on Twitter.

But the praise stopped when he launched the strangest celebration we've seen in a while. Think the robot/dad dancing/general movement of the limbs with no apparent coordination.

Viewers were left confused and cringing.

In the second half, Jamie Vardy evened things out by scoring from an impressively tight angle - and the #VardyParty was resurrected immediately.

But it was not enough to beat the Red Devils as their exciting new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic's excellent header 10 minutes from time meant they took home the 2-1 win and the shield.
