Watch: Colombian announcer holds ‘gol’ call for 37 seconds

Sunday June 26th, 2016

If you were watching Saturday’s Copa America third place game in Colombia, then you certainly enjoyed the 31st minute of the game...and the 32nd.

Carlos Bacca gave Colombia a 1–0 lead over the United States by netting a pass from James Rodriguez, and announcer Javier Fernandez Franco, ‘El Cantante del Gol,’ put a bow on the moment with a 37-second ‘GOL’ call.

You might be out of breath just listening to this.
