VVV Venlo may well be the winner of the best celebration of the season so far. The club won their game 3-1 this weekend, but the match was in severe danger of being postponed.
The cold weather in Holland had led to the pitch being frozen after recent snowfall. Home supporters braved the temperatures by shovelling snow off the pitch and ensured the game was played.
When Venlo scored the second goal through Brian Linsson, the midfielder took the corner flag out of the ground and used it as a fake shovel. His team-mates followed suit and the crowd cheered as they recognised the players’ tribute.
A lovely bit of a Christmas cheer.
