Clive Tyldesley Commentating Over A Replay Thinking It Was Happening Live Wins Highlight Of Euros So Far

ITV commentator and national treasure Clive Tyldesley produced one of the funniest moments of this summer's European Championship during Netherlands' clash against North Macedonia - and it shows even the best can occasionally get it wrong.

In the 29th minute of Monday's Group C tie, millions of fans watching at home were shown a highlight of North Macedonia goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski making a great save after breakout star Denzel Dumfries missed an opportunity to make it 2-0.

But instead of analysing the replay, a seemingly confused Tyldesley commentated over the action as if it was being played in real-time. You can even hear co-commentator Ally McCoist having a little giggle to himself afterwards. Brilliant.



Tyldesley, with that instantly-recognisable voice, has been praised by many for his compelling commentary throughout this summer's European Championship - and continues to earn praise alongside the equally-as-popular Ally McCoist.

In fact, Tyldesley and McCoist have been named the UK's best commentary team at the Euros.



In the study, write: "When it comes to the UK's favourite co-commentator - often the voice expected to provide expert insight and analysis - it should be no surprise that Ally McCoist is the most popular."

Tyldesley, meanwhile, clearly remains a big hit among fans - despite being replaced as lead commentator by ITV in favour of Sam Matterface.
