TORONTO – Mexico has garnered attention during World Cup, as much for the celebrations by its coach on the pitch as it has for its play.

Coach Miguel Herrera was elated after his team scored three goals against Croatia on Monday, resulting in the team to win the match 3-1.

Of course, World Cup fans instantly noticed Herrera’s energetic celebrations.

Herrera’s celebration, naturally, quickly became a social media meme:

Mexico will face the Netherlands on Sunday (which means more Internet post-worthy facial expressions from Herrera are sure to follow).
