However, his strike was ruled out following a VAR review for a handball by Antoine Semenyo.

As well as keeping the match goalless, it also ruined Solanke’s new goal celebration.

The forward had whipped out a bizarre mask after finding the back of the net for the Cherries.

He donned an orange spiral mask in reference to anime character Obio Uchiha.

The character is a popular figure in the manga and anime series Naruto.

Solanke has previously spoken of his love of anime and even recreated poses from his favourite series in his goal celebrations.

Asked if anime has influenced his style of play, he told Football Focus last month: “You could say mindset a bit because it’s just so, like, relentless, so many stories that the characters just not giving up.

“It’s actually always nice to think back to those characters and what they’ve gone through and how hard they worked.”
