Sporting Kansas City player Dom Dwyer took goal celebrations to the next level when he savoured the moment with a selfie.

After the striker - who grew up in Lynn - opened the scoring against Chicago Fire, he grabbed a phone from a nearby photographer and snapped a selfie of himself, Sonny Saad and a few happy Sporting fans.

His creativity wasn’t admired by referee Alan Kelly though, who brandished Dwyer a yellow card.

The striker scored when he robbed the defender of the ball and slotted past the on-rushing goalkeeper in a match which finished 1-1.

Dwyer spent his youth with Norwich City and King’s Lynn Town.

But success found his way when he crossed the atlantic when he took a football scholarship at Tyler Junior College in Texas where he scored 52 goals in 42 games before being drafted by Sporting in the 2012 MLS draft.

After the match in a reply to a fan on Twitter he joked that selfies are “worse than a bite.”
