WATCH: Mexico’s winner is even better with Andres Cantor’s legendary commentary

Get this guy on Fifa 19

Simon Lloyd

“Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool! Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!”

Andres Cantor, we can safely say, enjoyed Hirving Lozano’s goal for Mexico against Germany on Sunday afternoon.

Ten minutes from the break, the PSV Eindhoven winger was fed the ball inside the German box. With one touch, he cut inside, leaving Mats Hummels for dead, and fired low past Manuel Neuer.

It was a big goal. Big enough to trigger an earthquake back in his homeland (no, really); big enough to send the reigning world champions to defeat in their opening fixture.

Covering the game for Telemundo, the goal also prompted Cantor to launch into his passionate signature bellow of “Gooooool!”, as the footage below shows. His first attempt lasts for 12 seconds. Briefly stopping for breath, he goes again – this time for a further ten.

Magic. Possibly just as good as the way he covered Cristiano Ronaldo’s point-clinching late free-kick for Portugal in their 3-3 draw with Spain the other night.

Get this guy on Fifa 19, yeah?

Mexico’s win leaves them top of Group F, ahead of the other opening game between Sweden and South Korea on Monday.

Germany’s next game – now a must-win – will be against Sweden next Saturday. If they do win, they’ll almost certainly need something in their game against South Korea the following Wednesday to make sure of a place in the knockout stages.
