Balotelli posts a photo of Sven Yidah's celebration after Thauvin re-enacts it

Olympique Marseille forward Mario Balotelli has posted a silhouette art of Kariobangi Sharks' midfielder Sven Yidah's viral celebration on his official Instagram account after his teammate Florian Thauvin re-enacted the celebration in their 2-0 win over Amiens.

Yidah celebrated his spot kick in the penalty shoot-out against Mbao FC from Tanzania in the SportPesa Cup as Sharks eventually went on to clinch the cup that earned them a ticket to face English Premier League regulars, Everton.  His celebration of simulating an injury set social media ablaze as it went viral worldwide.

After scoring in the win over Amiens, Thauvin revealed his inspiration for the goal celebration, "We returned by bus from Dijon, so we had time to talk and to laugh a bit. We saw on Instagram the video of a player who celebrates a penalty like that. It made us all laugh on the bus and we said that we would do it if we scored in our next game. It is not at all to make the opponent believe that we are hurt, it is really a delusion between us."
