Watch: Yannick Carrasco celebrates equalizer with a kiss

Saturday May 28th, 2016

Atletico Madrid’s Yannick Carrasco tied up the Champions League final at 1–1 on Saturday, and celebrated with a big ol’ smooch.

Carrasco found the back of the net in the 79th minute against Real Madrid, latching onto a cross from Juanfran by the back post and bringing Atleti back to life in a tense affair in Milan. He saved his best move for the celebration, though. Carrasco ran right over to the sideline where his girlfriend, former Miss Belgium Noemie Happart, was waiting with open arms.

Then, they kissed in front of the millions of people watching there and around the globe.

The celebrations were short-lived for Carrasco, as Real Madrid prevailed in penalty kicks to win its 11th European championship.
