It was a moment Diallang Jaiyseimi will never forget: Putting League Two Yeovil ahead against Championship high-flyers Aston Villa.
The 20-year-old netted from close range in Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup clash at Huish Park just before half time and celebrated big time in front of the travelling Villa fans.
He milked the moment for all it was worth with hand gestures, grins, a jig and everything to hammer home how much it meant to derail those big-name Premier League wannabes.
He even copied the ‘take the L’ dance; a celebration also widely used by Antoine Griezmann.

When you celebrate in front of the away end but the goal is ruled out… 😬

Then came another moment Jaiyseimi will never forget: The goal was disallowed for a foul in the packed six-yard box.
Not only did the travelling Villa hundreds ripely ‘banter’ the youngster but Sky Sports had also captured the moment for hundreds of thousands of others to enjoy.
It was one ‘L’ of a comedown for Jaiyseimi as instant karma kicked in for the red-faced Norwich loanee.
His evening did not improve either. Yeovil went on to lose 1-0.
