‘We Love You Forever and Ever’: Mexico Commentator Goes Nuts After US Scores To Rescue Mexico [VIDEO]

panama usa 600x450 We Love You Forever and Ever: Mexico Commentator Goes Nuts After US Scores To Rescue Mexico [VIDEO]

If you missed last night’s action in the CONCACAF World Cup qualification process, you missed one of the most unreal nights of soccer in years — since perhaps the injury time winner by Sergio Aguero to win the Premier League title for Manchester City in 2012.

With Costa Rica beating Mexico 2-1 and Panama defeating the USA by the scoreline, it looked like Mexico was going to miss out on qualifying for the World Cup playoff. But with just minutes to go, the United States scored a goal to tie the match 2-2, which caused Mexican commentator Christian Martinoli from TV Azteca to erupt in jubilation (see video below), saying “We love you. We love you forever and ever. God bless America.”

While Mexico was celebrating, USA scored another goal to put the game well and truly out of Panama’s reach. The final score was 3-2 to the USA, while Mexico — despite playing horribly and losing 2-1 to Costa Rica — are through to the World Cup playoff next month against New Zealand.

What an incredible night of excitement!

To avoid further embarrassment, the TV Azteca station has blocked the YouTube video from being viewed by people in the United States. But we’ve been able to locate a version of the video that can still be viewed.

Here’s the translation of what the commentator says in Spanish (courtesy of Deadspin)

“It is because of the USA that we are being placed in the playoff …BECAUSE OF THEM , NOT DUE TO YOU..NOT ANY OF YOU in the green shirts ….IT WAS THEM!!.NOT YOU!..THEY DID IT!!!!!NOT YOU! remember this forever….. KEEP THIS CLEARLY IN MIND FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES! You do NOTHING for the shirt, you do NOT put the effort, you have NOT placed us in the playoffs , you HAVE NOT placed us in the WORLD CUP ..YOU WOULD NOT HAVE KEPT US ALIVE….IT WAS ESTADOS UNIDOS, NOT YOU! NOT YOU AND YOUR ARROGANCE/CONCEIT…..NOT YOU AND YOUR INFAMY….NOT YOU AND YOUR MORONS/PUNKS….
….
“IT IS A FAILURE…..and UNDESERVED -to go through to the playoff- WE HAD NO ARGUMENTS to earn the playoffs, THE USA, WITH SUBS, WITH MANY SUBS as the visiting team shows us once again what the USA is all about ….how to play the game with dignity, how to approach the sport..MExico is a horror, just terrible….A FAILURE….
……
THE USA HAS SURPASSED US ..They are better than Mexico in SOCCER ….THEY EVEN HAVE THE LUXURY OF PLAYING THEIR SUBS and KEEPING US ALIVE…. I hope our coach wears the pants and resigns..He has failed as coach….”

H/T Kckrs.

    Absolutely hilarious….

    “We love you forever and eveeeeer” (around 12 seconds into the video)

  2. Dean Stell says:

    It was insane. Glad I stayed up.

    Honestly, I joked in the lead-up to this game that I hoped the US would lose just to screw Mexico out of a WC spot, but you never really know how you’ll feel until the game is going on. Once it became clear that Mexico wasn’t going to take care of business in Costa Rica AND seeing how excited the Panamanian fans where when they took the lead in ~80th minute, I really wanted us to lose. I wanted Mexico to stay home as karmic feedback for all the urine bombs, booing during visiting teams national anthem and general lousy behavior. Similarly, I wanted Panama to go….those guys played their hearts out last night. Panama played like a team that wanted to play in the WC; Mexico did not.

    I really don’t understand what Panama was doing. Even after they scored, they kept pushing forward even though everyone was tired. If they had just bunkered for the last 10 minutes, they probably would be playing New Zealand next month.

    We saved Mexicos ass! They owe us for forever and eveeeeeer! Respect.

    • brazil is only for the worthy says:

  4. Clampdown says:

    Thanks for the translation. Amazing.

  5. bennett311 says:

    This was great, the further reaction after the Johannson goal was icing on the cake.

  6. gbewing says:

    got to love passion – I wish there was room in US sports broadcasting for people to act like people –

    the general consensus from pundits was USA would roll over to sabotage Mexico. I never thought Klinsman would do it, he wants USA winning too much and besides I don’t think there’s that much animosity toward Mexico – I feel worse for Panama-brutal way to go out. When I first saw the late goals on gamecast I was worried a job was done by a bad call or something but no the goals were legit (keep did poorly on the 3rd I thought) a great day in North American soccer.

  7. Beto Vega says:

    He spoke for all Mexicans. Some wondered whether he was going to get told off, punished for saying that, but I think He deserves props for having the gut to say what we all felt in Mexico that night. Specially because our national team has players who play abroad (in Europe) , but they really are not all that good, they suck when a good performance is most needed, particularly Chicharito (video): http://www.futboltotal.com.mx/prensa-europea-destaca-falla-del-chicharito/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFE5nPVil4o
