James Rodriguez's spectacular goal made a Colombian radio announcer lose his mind

Monday June 30th, 2014

James Rodriguez's goal against Uruguay (seen above) may have been the best in a World Cup which has already featured several stunning golazos. Rodriguez played the ball off his chest, turned to face the goal while letting it fall to his feet, and unleashed a powerful strike all in one motion. Two years of middle school Spanish aren't enough for me to decipher how the goal was called on Colombian radio, but the announcer sure sounds hyped. 

Granted, nothing can beat the music-backed commentary on Colombian television, but the radio guy gave it his all.
