No one celebrates a goal by Mexico's national team quite like Miguel Herrera.

Herrera’s boisterous, often two-fist-pumping celebrations have made him a sensation on the Internet and among World Cup watchers. On Monday, during his team’s winning game against Croatia, he seemed to take it to a whole new level.

At one point, he even bear-hugged a player while rolling on the pitch.

Herrera’s antics have even inspired mashups of Herrera as Pokemon’s Super Saiyan, bursting into flames and throwing off lightning bolts.

Here's a collection of animated GIFs that show him in all his unrestrained glory.
