Al-Hilal secured their longest winning streak in the Saudi Professional Football League with a 2-0 win over Al-Fayha, in which Ali Al-Bulaihi's first-goal celebration drew attention.
Ali Al-Bulaihi scored for his team, Al-Hilal, four minutes before the end of regular time in the match, leading Al-Hilal to a 2-0 win over Al-Fayha.
To celebrate the goal, the Saudi player took a blue balloon from his sock, held it up and raised it with his mouth, reminiscent of the way Chelsea's Englishman Frenchman Christopher Ngungu celebrated.
But in a video clip that went viral on social media (X), Al-Bulaihi said he kept a balloon in his sock for two months, waiting for the moment to score a goal to celebrate in this way, but he denied it. I learned about the celebration of the Frenchman.
Al Hilal's second goal was scored by striker Aleksandar Mitrovic with a penalty kick.
The Serbian international, who moved to Al Hilal from England's Fulham last August, became the third player in league history to score in ten or more consecutive matches to 17 goals.
The 29-year-old is second in the competition's top scorers list this season, with Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, an Al-Nasr player, continuing his favorite pastime of achieving achievements.
