Tuesday night in Madrid was about one man and one man only - Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis.
The Club Brugge striker, who is just 21 years old, notched a surprising brace at the Santiago Bernabeu, to hand his side a 2-0 half-time lead in the Spanish capital.
And, speaking to Esporte Interativo, the forward explained his decision to replicate Cristiano Ronaldo's famed celebration, admitting: "I like Ronaldo. He's my favourite player in the world and I am not happy he left Madrid, so I just do the celebration to show them they miss something."
The reporter then asks him about his pre-match claims about getting a tattoo if he scored. Prior to the tie, whilst looking around the stadium before the game, Dennis had said: “That's a dream huh?
“There are many who never thought they would play football here, and if I score then I get a tattoo.”
Can anyone guess Gnabry's rating? https://t.co/IelWx2Ujyl— 90min (@90min_Football) October 2, 2019
However, when the reporter followed up on his pre-match statement, the striker replied: "Yeah before the game I said if I score I will do a tattoo, but I was just bluffing, I was joking."
Asked if he was sure, he laughingly added: "I was joking. I was just joking."
