And the Oscar for Best Actor goes to... Alvaro Morata!

Scorer against Elche on Thursday in La Liga to endorse Atletico Madrid's victory (2-0), the Spanish striker performed a funny simulation as the ball was about to cross the goal of the unfortunate Edgar Badia .

Shifted by Antoine Griezmann, double decisive passer against the red lantern of the championship, Morata puts his vis-à-vis on the buttocks of a devastating hook to infiltrate the surface, repeats his gesture in front of Carlos Clerc then continues with a hit counter.

The ball flies away before falling back into the goal of the Elche goalkeeper who was lying on his right.

Slightly unbalanced by the opposing defender when trying his luck, Morata then tried to obtain a penalty by writhing in pain in the heart of the truth zone, without realizing that his ball had indeed crossed the goal line .

In front of the clamor of the Madrid enclosure, the center forward ends up hitting and gets up with a snap of the finger to go celebrate his goal with his partners as if nothing had happened.

An acting game worthy of the greatest of the 7th art.

With this goal, Alvaro Morata takes his tally to six in 15 La Liga games played this season.

During the World Cup in Qatar, he distinguished himself with Spain, scoring three goals against Costa Rica, Germany and Japan.

One of the rare satisfactions in this World Cup for La Roja, eliminated in the round of 16 by Morocco (0-0, 3-0 on pens).
