The Greatest Bit Of Commentary In Football History Involves Incredible Formula One Car Noise

Forget Martin Tyler's "AGUEROOOOOO!" and even Kenneth Wolstenholme's classic "They think it's all over, it is now!" line from England's 1966 World Cup win, we have another contender for the greatest bit of football commentary.

In a Copa Sudamericano Under 20 game between Venezuela and Brazil, the TyC Sports commentator produced audio that you would not expect in a football match.

When Venezuela's Jan Carlos Hurtado displayed incredible pace to burn from his own half and left three Brazil defenders in his wake, the man in the commentary box got so excited he started mimicking a Formula One car and going 'Vroom' to convery how fast the player was dribbling.

Words had truly failed him and he could only manage a slew of car engine noises.

Sadly Hurtado was unable to finish off the sublime mazy run with a finish but the commentary has still gone viral regardless, with over 1.9 million views and a serious number of retweets on the clip.

What's more, BT Sport's Jake Humphrey has called for his employers to sign him up.

You need great commentary to capture great football moments and last year we got exactly that when Roma produced an unbelievable Champions League comeback to knock out Barcelona.

When Roma netted their winning goal, BT Sport's Peter Drury showed just why he's an absolute master of the art of commentary.

Kostas Manolas sent the Stadio Olimpico into a frenzy when he headed home Cengiz Ünder's corner in the 82nd minute and Drury, one of the very best in the business, killed it with his commentary.

The line "Roma have risen from the ruins!", him calling Manolas "the Greek God in Rome" and saying the defender went to the seven hills of Rome to pull off a miracle is just absolute perfection.
