Daniel Georgievski notched one goal for Steaua București in Romanian Cup action, and then followed that up with a crazy celebration, mimicking a kangaroo.
Daniel Georgievski is known as the “crazy kangaroo” by Steaua București fans, and in today’s Romanian Cup encounter between Steaua and Poli Timișoara, in which the right-back scored a rare goal, he decided to celebrate it by mimicking a kangaroo. Although Daniel now represents Macedonia internationally, he was originally born in Australia and the kangaroo is synonymous with that country. That is why the Steaua fans gave him that nickname since he was born in Australia and is also a little wild as a player.
Georgievski started as a right wing-back for Steaua in a 3-4-2-1 formation in Wednesday’s game against Poli Timișoara, helping his club win 2:0 by playing a part in both goals. Daniel scored the first goal in the 12th minute, and then was involved in the action on the second goal in the 74th minute. His goal came on a simple shot following a rebound after Cristian Tănase’s effort was initially saved by the Poli Timișoara keeper. The second goal, meanwhile, occurred on a low cross by Georgievski from the right that was first touched by Andrei Prepeliță in front of the goal before the ball was then sent to the back of the net by Federico Piovaccari for an easy goal.
With the win, Steaua advanced to the quarter-finals of the Romanian Cup.
