FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Inter Miami fans can rejoice that their new soccer team has a world-class striker — and they can count on some world-class wordplay from their announcer, too.
Argentine national Gonzalo Higuaín netted his first MLS goal on a stunning free kick Wednesday night in a 2-1 victory at the New York Red Bulls.
And let’s just say that Ray Hudson’s call was more than up to the moment (not that we should be surprised given his quotable history).
Behold it in all its glory:
Nasty!!! Game winner for your @InterMiamiCF and what a first MLS goal for our Gonzalo Higuaín. Call by @RayHudson is epic pic.twitter.com/Rrda5xAEAj— Jorge Mas (@Jorge__Mas) October 8, 2020
Among the many highlights:
“Beautiful angle and a beautiful distance. These are the ones you’ll be practicing in Fort Lauderdale Stadium while the moon goes to sleep.”
“He steers this one, it grows big eyeballs on the way to the net...”
“... and it’s as sharp as vinegar!”
“That is class in a glass.”
“An absolute pearler of a curler.”
