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.
Enjoy the terrific interview below.
