There was plenty of bewilderment at Stade de France as Iceland midfielder Arnor Traustason made the game-winning score against Austria to secure the nation’s first-ever trip to the Euro knockout round, but one of the craziest reactions to the incredible score was Iceland’s play-by-play commentator.

With nobody to stop Traustason from making his run to the goal, the Iceland commentator could not contain himself and began screaming his lungs out – noticeably becoming hoarse as the ball went in for the game-winning score.
That’s fan passion for someone from a small country that brought a sizeable portion of its entire population to France just for the privilege of watching the team compete. Now they’re in the Round of 16 against England.
