Nailed it.

Johnny Manziel and the Cleveland Browns may have lost to the all-conquering Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL on Thursday Night Football, but “Johnny Football” can take solace in the fact that he does a mean Cristiano Ronaldo celebration.

After throwing a touchdown pass in the first half of a game where the Browns kept it close in the all-Ohio battle, Manziel celebrated on the sidelines a la Ronaldo with his famous goal celebration. And let’s face it, we’ve all seen that celebration because Ronaldo is a machine and recently became the all-time leading goalscorer for Real Madrid with 326 goals in 314 appearances.

In the video below, check out the Browns QB throwing down the jump and spin move seemingly all on his own.

Not bad, huh? It seems as though Manziel has either been playing plenty of FIFA and/or watching Real in his spare time or this is just a canny coincidence.

Cristiano, how are you going to emulate Manziel in return?
