Guðmundur Benediktsson talks Iceland

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will surely have heard the epic commentary from Iceland’s Guðmundur Benediktsson as his country beat Austria 2-1 at Euro 2016 yesterday.

The audio has become one of the most memorable moments from this summer’s tournament.

Benediktsson seemed to lose his mind as Iceland set up a last 16 tie against England.

Benediktsson talks to the BBC

The Icelandic commentator has told BBC 5 live that ‘he didn’t know what he was saying’ when he started screaming, as Arnor Ingvi Traustason scored a dramatic injury-time winner against Austria to seal Iceland’s place in the last 16 of Euro 2016.

It was total joy, it’s been a dream of mine since I was a boy. I’m living the dream a commentator.
