Screencap

Santos wunderkind Gabriel Barbosa scored in his side's 3-0 win over Chapecoense on Saturday, and he celebrated the goal with a bit of karate.

While the celebration was good in its own right, was it actually a "wax on, wax off" reference to the classic '80s film The Karate Kid? Some have claimed as much, but we're not so sure. After all, its 1984 release date was a full 12 years before the young striker was born.
