Video: Argentina Victory

It came in a 3-1 result against Panama -- a friendly with domestic-based players for the Albiceleste, though the announcer makes it sound like the 1978 World Cup final:

that sounds like a radio show doing a voice over for the game.

Looks like ol' Diego has been hitting the Krispy Kremes with regularity...

Lovely goal #3.

First goal was offside...can't believe it was missed in a game of such huge importance ;)

Great announcer. Dude must've had to clean his shorts after the game. What must he sound like announcing a game that counts for something? 8-o

That was an exhausting clip. That did feel like a huge final.
You should have gone with the third goal, mcn107. At least that onside goal looked close.

Veron was called up for this match wasn't he? Did he play any?

Three things:

1) Great music after the goals

2) I'm pretty sure we could beat Panama at home with MLS players 3-1, and likely without Donovan

3) I'm pretty sure I'd pay a portion (I can't afford all) of what it would take to have that guy announce it, and I don't even speak spanish.

This reminds me of commercials for a cable company in Uruguay that showed you unremarkable parts of games with fake radio commentary on top. It helps to understand Spanish to appreciate how funny it is.

That's how the guy announces any game, maybe just a little more umph because its the NT.

Limarzi trys his best but it doesnt roll off the tounge like it does in spanish. Limarzi has heard it before I assure you. Every Colombia NT game is broadcast the same way this one was.
