Football fans on Twitter noticed a very interesting celebration from Eintracht Frankfurt’s Ante Rebic just before teammate Luka Jović scored against Chelsea.

The Bundesliga side faced English side, Chelsea, in a UEFA Europa League semi-final second leg fixture at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.
Playing at their home ground, Commerzbank-Arena, a week ago, Eintracht Frankfurt held Chelsea to a frustrating 1-1 draw. Luka Jovic scored before Pedro equalised late in the first half.
Much to the surprise of many fans, it was much of the same in the second leg.
That is because despite Ruben Loftus-Cheek scoring the opener in the 28th minute, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic scored the all-important away goal to bring Frankfurt level at 2-2 on aggregate.
As noticed on social media, Jovic’s teammate Ante Rebic celebrated the Serbian’s goal before he’d even touched the ball.
Just as Jovic is put through on goal, Rebic can be seen throwing his hands in the air celebrating.
As Rebic expects, Jovic puts the ball expertly passed Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The German side, however, lost to their competition in penalty shoot-outs. Chelsea converted four of their spot kicks, while Eintracht Frankfurt scored three.
Chelsea will meet fellow English side, Arsenal, in the UEFA Europa League final on May 29 in Baku, Azerbaijan.
