Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Just Celebrated a Goal By Putting On the Black Panther Mask

🙅🏾🙅🏾🙅🏾

Arsenal played their second leg game against Rennes in the Europa League today, in which the Gunners looked to turn things around and pass on to the next round.

The star of the match turned out to be Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who netted two goals in the Thursday night match at the Emirates.

The real highlight for most though was his celebration after scoring Arsenal's third goal of the night.

Around the 72nd second minute, Aubamayeng tapped a cross from the left into the goal and proceeded to (somehow) pull out a Black Panther mask for his celebration.

He immediately put the mask the mask on and even pulled out the Wakanda Forever salute to boot. He got booked, of course, but who cares.

Best celebration of the season? Likely so.

Check it out below.
