Joao Cancelo was on target for Portugal, as they defeat Bosnia 5-0 on Monday night.
All 5 goals came in the first-half, with Cancelo scoring the fourth for his country, and celebrated wildly.
Explaining the reason for his celebration, the 29-year-old Barcelona right-back said: “I celebrated like this [very passionately] as a reply to all those who love to criticise me. I have always been professional.
“Someone tries to sell a bad image of me, but that’s fake. I’ve good heard and I always do my best.”
A few days ago, Cancelo was bashed for the way he treated Barca fans who wanted a photo and his signature, and he believes the campaign was done to smear his image.
