England's Dele Alli busts out 'Fortnite' dance in World Cup match against Sweden

England and Sweden faced off in the World Cup on Saturday morning, and a familiar dance from Fortnite just so happened to make an appearance in the game.

After England's midfielder Dele Alli scored the team's second goal against Sweden, doubling their score in England's quarterfinal match, he celebrated by busting the following move from the popular survival video game.

The crowd went wild after the goal, and Fortnite fans online celebrated yet another World Cup nod to the video game.

For those who are unfamiliar with the game, Fortnite players can make their characters perform several fun little dances in the emotes menu. Performing the moves IRL has become quite the trends, and seeing them outside of the game is a real hoot.

Alli's celebratory move, known as "Ride the Pony," gained a lot of love online by those who got the reference, but others were very against the dance moves. And a few strictly soccer fans were also admittedly confused as hell.

Others noted that it's not the first Fortnite dance Alli has done during a game, nor is it the first time one of the dances has been performed during the World Cup. French player Antoine Griezmann was also seen busting a Fortnite move in a previous game, as was Manchester United's Jesse Lingard.

Serious question. The Griezmann Take The L celebration was from #Fortnite or did Fortnite take that somewhere else? Also I realised Lingard and Dele Alli have done dances from the game too.

As the World Cup continues we may have to witness other celebratory Fortnite moves, so try your best to keep that old saying in mind: Don't hate the player, hate the dances inspired by video games.
