Your favourite world cup commentator moment

And yes, it has to be a world cup moment so sorry Norway, your British history lesson doesn't qualify.

This one is almost as good though...


  • And Costa Rica have scored (sorry @cafcdave123)

    And here comes Hurst! He's got...

    (Wolstenholme is distracted by some of the crowd spilling onto the pitch)

    Some people are on the pitch! They think it's all over!

    (Geoff Hurst scores to put England two goals ahead)

    It is now, it's four!

    The winner, nothing gets close to Ken.

    Who scored?
  • Sorry, couldn't help it, here it is...
  • Jonathon Pearce vs Spain in Euro 96
  • Not so much favourite but one that sticks in my mind is when arie Hahn scored a 40 yarder in 1978.

    Its not a World Cup moment yet there is a moment between Germany and Czech Republic

    John Motson: "Germany are getting ready to make two substitutions; Kuntz..."

  • This, by a country mile. Translation below of the entire rant - sorry for the background music:

    "Penalty! Penalty! Penalty! Grosso's done it! Grosso's done it! Don't give the Australians any chance."

    ... "The great Italian left back! He succeeded in the glorious traditions of Italy! Facchetti, Cabrini and Maldini, their souls are infused in him at this moment! Grosso represents the long history and traditions of Italian soccer; he's not fighting alone at this moment! He's not alone!!"

    ... "Totti, Totti is facing the spot kick. He is facing the expectations from Italian soccer fans all over the world."

    ... "Schwarzer has saved two spot kicks in the World Cup qualifying tournaments, both of these were during the World Cup qualification playoffs . Totti should have known this. Will he still be able to face the man in front of him with a smile? How about his expression after 10 seconds?"

    ... "Goooooal! Game over! Italy win! Beat the Socceroos! They do not fall in front of Hiddink again! Italy the great! Italian left back the great! Long live Italy! Happy birthday to Maldini!! Forza Italia!!"

    ... "He didn't let the Italians down. This penalty kick was an absolute one-off! Absolute one-off! Italy have made the final eight!"

    ... "The victory belongs to Italy, to Grosso, to Cannavaro, to Zambrotta, to Buffon, to Maldini, to everyone who loves Italian soccer!!"

    ... "The hell with them!" (Background voice)

    ... "The Socceroos might regret, Hiddink! He played too conservatively and too calmly with one more player [than Italy] in the second half, he lost all his courage. Faced with the long history and traditions of Italian soccer, he didn't attack as fiercely as he did in the group matches. He finally reaped the fruits which he had sown! They should go home. They don't need to go as far away as Australia as most of them are living in Europe. Farewell!"


    Someone did some sick dance remix of this commentary, but unfortunately I can't find it. The commentator resigned in the aftermath of this, as well - pretty infamous in China.
