Inter to face Stjarnum, football's goal celebration specialists

The Icelandic outfit made headlines in 2011 when a video of their comical depictions of cycling, swimming and delivering a baby was posted on the internet

Inter fans may find themselves in the unusual position of wanting their team to concede when Walter Mazzarri’s men begin their Europa League campaign later this month.

That’s because the Nerazzurri have been drawn against Stjarnum, the Icelandic outfit who have become famous throughout the football world for their amusing goal celebrations.

Indeed, as soon as Inter drew the Urvalsdeild outfit in Friday’s draw for the Europa League play-off round, the comical 2011 Youtube video of Stjarnum’s most elaborate choreographies (below) was wheeled out on Sky Sport24.

The hugely popular clip features a succession of wonderfully bizarre celebrations, including the club’s players pretending to catch a fish, ride a bike and deliver a baby – as well as pay tribute to action film icon ‘Rambo’.

Given Stjarnum are now set for the biggest fixture in their history, football fans will be expecting something special should Runar Pall Sigmundsson’s side find the net against Inter.

Indeed, even the San Siro faithful could be forgiven for looking forward to the prospect of the Icelanders scoring when the two sides meet at the Giuseppe Meazza for the second leg on August 28.
