VIDEO: Argentine commentator breaks down bawling after key score

VIDEO: Argentine commentator breaks down bawling after key score

An Argentinian commentator was completely overcome when his team finally scored against Switzerland.

The Swiss gave Argentina a tough game last night and it looked like penalties were on the way before Angel Di Maria scored this goal in the 28th minute of extra-time.

Argentinian journalist Pablo Giralt was commentating the match for DIRECTV Sports and was unable to control his emotions after the deadlock was finally broken.

He maintained his professionalism long enough to get in the obligatory “Gooooooooaaaaaal!!” immediately after Di Maria scored, but then grew hoarser until he was sobbing openly and his co-commentator stepped in.

Phil Neville take note; this is the passion football fans are looking for in their pundits.
