 Fans react to 'creepy' BBC commentary line during Spain vs France broadcast

Fans react to 'creepy' BBC commentary line during Spain vs France broadcast

Fans took to social media following Lamine Yamal's goal in Spain's 2-1 win over France.

The BBC have been on the receiving end of criticism from fans who found the commentary during Spain and France's Euro 2024 semi-final 'creepy'.

Spain secured their spot in the final of Euro 2024 with a 2-1 victory over one of the pre-tournament favourites in France and will face the winner of England vs Netherlands in Berlin on Sunday.

France opened the scoring through Randal Kolo Muani, who headed home Kylian Mbappe's sublime cross inside the first 10 minutes, but the game was flipped on its head with quickfire goals from Lamine Yamal and Dani Olmo.

Yamal's goal was particularly special, as the teenager scored arguably the goal of the tournament as he cut inside and curled one into the top corner.

The 16-year-old's strike meant he became the youngest scorer in European Championship history on Tuesday night after he equalised for Luis de la Fuente's side.

However, the commentary following Yamal's wonder goal has raised eyebrows on social media, with BBC commentator Steve Wilson's 'sweet little 16' comment leaving some viewers completely baffled.

One fan wrote: "'Sweet little 16' was the weirdest way of putting it. Didn't like that bit of commentary."

Another added: "The BBC commentator - 'sweet little 16' was not a wise choice of words."

A third posted to X: "Lamine Yamal, there's youthful confidence right there, pick that one out what a finish out of nowhere but Steve Wilson's 'sweet little 16' line on @BBCSport commentary was beyond creepy."

A fourth added: "Sweet little 16 is terrible commentary. I’m sorry."
