Forgive this Icelandic soccer announcer if he's a bit overexcited. It's just that, for tiny Iceland, its accomplishments in the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament are downright impressive.
And in that run of success, nothing was more gripping or exciting than Iceland's late goal by Arnor Ingvi Traustason against Austria, which sealed a win in the team's second group match and clinched a spot in the knockout round of the tournament.
As you can tell from the audio, the announcer recognized the opportunity as it developed in a three-on-one break against Austria's goal:

Only two questions remain: Can Iceland extend its run of unthinkable success by beating England in its next match and win the entire group? More importantly, will his voice be recovered from its ascension to the heavens in time to call it?
For the sake of entertainment, we hope the answer to both of those question is a loud "Yes."
