Sometimes it’s not the wisest idea to having Spanish-speaking announcers commentating a soccer match in English, especially when it’s not their native tongue.
The perfect example was today’s Real Zaragoza against Racing Santander match. Here’s what the GolTV commentator said during the match:
“It’s a pity for Racing Santander that they no longer have Zigic in their starting eleven, the two centimeter striker who joined Valencia.”
I wonder if the commentator was inspired by the movie “This Is Spinal Tap,” which features a similar joke on the topic?
Nikola Zigic, by the way, is 6 ft 7 in.
