Fortnite celebrations are nothing new to the world of sport this year, especially in soccer, and even already in the World Cup. Still, Antoine Griezmann busted out the Take the L emote after scoring on a penalty kick in the 38th minute.

In case you’re living under a rock and not familiar with Fortnite, this is what the dance looks like in the game:

Griezmann has done this before, in the World Cup, too — June 30 in France’s first knockout stage game against Argentina, where he also scored on a penalty kick.
