Celebrating Kostas Manolas' Birthday By Remembering His Iconic Goal
When incredible drama and special moments occur in the great game of football, you need commentary to perfect capture it all and tell that story.
An iconic piece of commentary is everything. From Martin Tyler's "Agueroooo!" to Gary Neville's Torres-gasm, those goals would not be anywhere near as memorable had it not been for the spine-tingling description that came with it.
On April 11th 2018, when Roma netted their winning goal to complete a stunning Champions League quarter final comeback over the mighty Barcelona, BT Sport's Peter Drury showed 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.
Him calling Manolas "the Greek God in Rome" and saying he came to the seven hills of Rome to pull of a miracle is just absolute perfection.
Similarly, the commentary from the Italian commentator in Rome was just sensational and will also give you goosebumps galore. Emotion and passion in abundance.
HOOK IT TO OUR VEINS!
Happy Birthday Kostas, what incredible moment you created!
