At the time, we honestly had no idea what he was doing.

Which just goes to show how ignorant we are to the world of great Brazilian forwards and their goal celebrations, with one supporter claiming to have a theory behind the dance.

Taking to Twitter, one fan posted a video of the great Ronaldinho scoring a penalty for Atletico Mineiro back in 2013.

The video shows him smashing home the spot-kick before running towards the crowd and lowering his shorts before leading a four-man dance off.

Take a look:

Nice.

Looks like Firmino just needs three friends to lower his shorts with next time.

Firmino’s goal was the Reds fourth on the night, helping Jurgen Klopp’s side reach the Champions League group stage for the first time in three years.

Liverpool will face Spartak Moscow, Sevilla and Slovenian side Maribor in Group E of the competition.

The fun starts now, folks.
