UCL: Nigerian striker Dennis explains why he did Ronaldo's celebration at Real Madrid

Nigerian striker Emmanuel Dennis has explained why he did Cristiano Ronaldo's celebration after scoring against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Dennis scored Club Brugge's two goals in a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid on the UEFA Champions League Match Day 2.

"Yes, I did a Cristiano Ronaldo goal celebration when I scored. I've been a Cristiano fan forever and I was very upset when he left Madrid. So I decided that if I scored in the Bernabeu tonight that's what I'd do," Dennis said after the game.

"Everyone expected them to beat us easily. We prepared for them, we believed and we had a good feeling.

"We took the lead with two goals, and obviously it would have been better to have beaten them too. I am a little bit disappointed in a way, but also happy that we won a point against a big team."

"We train a lot, we train hard and we came here to make Ramos and Varane run," he added.

"They are defenders – defenders don't like to run! Most teams come here and play in a block, but we broke from the block and worked like mad."

The 21-year-old and South Africa's Percy Tau were constant threats for the hosts, with both stars linking up to open the scoring in Madrid.
