Legendary soccer announcer Ian Darke is set to call the 2014 World Cup for ESPN this summer, and there's no better way for him to prepare than by doing play-by-play for an awkward first date.

Well, that might not be exactly true, seeing as Darke has years of experience covering some of the world's top competition. But thanks to a recent commercial Darke did for ESPN, we no longer have to wonder what it would sound like for him to commentate on a first date.

The setting is a restaurant where two singles are meeting for the first time, but the way Darke sells it, it might as well be the World Cup final. Throughout the date Darke's analysis is spot on, and he delivers some great lines as this klutz tries to impress his date.

Despite several setbacks, this guy somehow manages to pull even with some crafty late-game moves.
