The Best Tweets As Gerry Armstrong's Biased Commentary Stole The Show

Northern Ireland's World Cup dream is over after they lost out to Switzerland 1-0 on aggravate. While their campaign comes to an end, there was much to be appreciated about the effort of both their players on the field and their fan in the commentary box, in the form of Gerry Armstrong.

Armstrong was on co-commentary for both legs, and after a first leg where he went as far as to claim that Switzerland captain Stephan Lichtsteiner was time wasting because of his 'latin blood', some football fans would have tuned in on Sunday night just to hear Armstrong again.

Gerry's biased commentary is certainly more entertaining than a boring co-commentator who will just churn out cliches, and viewers couldn't help but notice his unconventional style and celebrate it on social media:

Armstrong is usually outstanding as a La Liga Commentator, although seems to adopt a different persona when his own country is involved.

Still, there'll be no changing him, and as long as you're not supporting the side Northern Ireland are playing it's harmless fun... For the most part.
