José Antonio Camacho Enjoyed Andrés Iniesta’s Goal
José Antonio Camacho is a former Real Madrid and Spain left back, who has been working as a co-commentator for Spanish television station Cuatro at World Cup 2010. While there, Camacho has become something of a YouTube phenomenon for his on-air goal celebrations. Not quite David After Dentist, but pretty big.
Above you can see his reaction when Andrés Iniesta scored Spain’s World Cup winning goal against Netherlands yesterday. There’s a big shout of “GOOOOOL!”, lots of microphone shaking, and a proclomation that “Iniesta de mi vida!”, which according to Sid Lowe means “Iniesta of my life!”
That’s a Real Madrid legend (Camacho served Real for 15 years from 1974 to 1989) screaming not easily translatable but definitely committal and complimentary things about a future Barcelona legend. Proof that Spain winning the World Cup is bigger than any club rivalry.
