Argentina commentator goes ballistic after Messi goal

While British folks have to make do with the likes of Andy Townsend and Martin Keown, Argentinian football fans routinely have their eardrums blown to smithereens by the excitable hollering of commentator Alejandro Fantino -- legendary for his passionate, almost health-endangering support of the Albiceleste.

Indeed, when Lionel Messi popped up to score Argentina's injury-time winner against Iran on Saturday, Fantino almost burst a heart valve when he launched into a brilliant tirade live on air which started with him thanking Messi for his genius and culminated in him asking for people of Brazil to throw Pele at him as tears streaked down his face!

"COME WITH ALL YOU'VE GOT! THROW 'THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA' AT ME!" is a personal highlight.
