The World Cup is off to a crackling start with 28 goals in eight matches, Costa Rica’s epic upset of Uruguay, the Netherlands’ demolition of Spain, ambitious attacking soccer … and Pablo Armero‘s goal celebration. The Colombian left back showed off his slick moves after scoring early in a 3-0 victory over Greece on Saturday. It was hardly his first jubilant celebration.

Pure joy:
