This poor TV reporter keeps getting trolled by the same soccer player

Wednesday October 14th, 2015

This is “Where in the World Wednesday,” a new feature where we’ll try to bring you something from somewhere else in the world that you probably haven’t seen on another American sports site already. Or maybe you’re more worldly than us and you have seen it already. Congratulations. This week we have a clinic in trolling television reporters.

Northern Ireland qualified for its first ever European Championship last week and no one is having more fun with this historic occasion than striker Kyle Lafferty.

Lafferty, who scored six goals during the qualification campaign, spent this past week trolling the hell out of Sky Sports reporter Paul Gilmore.


How is a guy supposed to respond when the player he’s interviewing lists a bunch of South American countries as teams he wants to face in the European Championships?

In case you were wondering, the national team totally supports Lafferty’s pranks. It was the entity that posted the video on YouTube.
