The crowd went wild this week as the Socceroos qualified for their sixth FIFA World Cup.
All thanks to a last-minute substitute, substitute goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne, who held off Peru in a penalty shootout.
With his Wiggles dance moves and hilarious reaction to the win, it was truly a heartwarming moment.
Redmayne’s wife Caitlin revealed the sweet reason behind his awkward post-game celebration in an interview with the Network Nine.
“I have to say it was a tribute to our little girl Poppy,” she said.
“That face he pulls always lights up his face. I’m pretty sure it was for her, it wasn’t just him making that crazy face. It was quite special. Look at that face, you couldn’t not love it.
We can’t wait to see the Socceroos continue to score in Qatar in November, with hopefully many more heartwarming moments like this to come!
Give this man a Logie!
Redmayne wasn’t the only man to go viral for his post-match shenanigans.
In Melbourne’s Federation Square, ABC presenter Tony Armstrong could barely contain his excitement as the news broke.
Armstrong was swarmed by dozens of celebrating Socceroos fans, who jumped for joy, kissed the camera lens and even snagged the presenter’s scarf (which was hand-knitted by his mother).
Fortunately, he shared on Twitter that he then found his scarf (phew).
It’s certainly been a big week for Armstrong, who is nominated for the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Popular New Talent at the Logies, with the awards ceremony taking place this Sunday.
