This is an excellent clip starting to do the rounds in the Spanish speaking world.
Referee Mariano Gonzalez has received plaudits in Argentina after congratulating Sociedad Sportiva Devoto forward Nicolas Barbero on a wonder goal against Almafuerte.
The incident took place at the end of November in the lower leagues in Argentina with Barbero a striker known for banging in aesthetically pleasing goals.
So good is Barbero’s lob that no one on his side or the opposition seems even vaguely surprised about the referee’s congratulations and the pair have a chat on the way back to the centre circle.
Well played referee!
