Every International Commentator Reaction To Long's Belter Was Superb

We simply cannot get enough of Shane Long's wonder strike last night against Germans.

George Hamilton's commentary for the strike was typically passionate and patriotic, however he'd have probably reacted in the same fashion if we scored a deflected rebound.

Seeing as the fixture was broadcast across the globe, we were keen to see how the wonder strike was received by other commentators, and if they shared our overwhelming sense of holy shit as the ball whistled past Manuel Neuer and into the top corner.


Let's start with our pals over in France who summed it up with the use of one word...."Magnifique"


Across the pond SKY provided the type of high pitched roar that would make Martin Tyler worried about losing his job.




Now I'm not exactly a specialist when it comes to linguistics but I'm pretty sure this is Polish. This is mainly down to the fact that they refuse to show any emotion towards the strike, probably because they've realised what's coming their way on Sunday.


Over to Spain next, who seemed to appreciate the unorthodox tiki taka style of Darren Randolph and Shane Long. They usually reserve the term "Golazo" for Messi and Ronaldo, so the fact that they've used it here means we've done something special.



We're over to Brazil next, or it could be Portugal, but judging by the commentators reaction we assume it's Brazil. Only a Brazilian would appreciate the laser-like accuracy of Randolph's pass and the reverse offside trap deployed by agent Walters.


Nice to finally receive some international recognition for our glorious football.
