Jesus "Tecatito" Corona's clutch goal for Mexico Monday night brought fans to their feet, jaws to the floor and gasps into the air. It also made for fodder for a great call on the Spanish broadcast. 

Univision's Pablo Ramirez counted the number of defenders Corona burned on his slaloming run as he blew past them before holding a prolonged "golazo!" as Corona and his teammates celebrated at NRG Stadium in Houston. The goal secured a 1-1 draw for Mexico, which was enough for El Tri to win Group C and earn a more favorable path to the final. Had Mexico lost, it would have faced a quarterfinal against Argentina while being on the same side of the bracket as the USA and Ecuador.

Listen to what Corona's goal sounded like en español:

Corona and Mexico await the identity of its quarterfinal opponent, though it is almost certainly going to be Chile or Panama.
