Costa Rica, Ecuador Announcers Issue Open Challenge To Colombia

We noted yesterday how awesome Colombian broadcast goal calls are, but Costa Rica and Ecuador are offering just as stiff a challenge. Here's every goal scored yesterday, as heard back in that country. (Costa Rica is above, from national radio. It includes singing.)


Here's Ecuador's goals, as heard on Radio Sucre. They do the "play celebratory music" approach, but their song doesn't kick as much ass as Colombia's.

Here's the call of Honduras' goal, from VTV.

France scored many goals! Here's all of them, as seen on TF1.

Here are Switzerland's two goals, as heard on SRF Zwei. The announcers don't get very excited; true professionals, they're sworn to neutrality.

Every day, Deadspin compiles each World Cup goal as called on a broadcast in the country that scored it. See previous days here.
