Every Univision ¡GOOOL! Of The World Cup, Ranked By Length

We've been fans of ESPN's excellent World Cup coverage, but for your money's worth it's tough to beat the live match broadcasts on Univision. Here's every goal scored thus far in the World Cup, stitched together into one very long ¡GOOOOOOOOOL!. Below you'll find a chart ranking every goal of the tournament by how long, in seconds, the Univision announcer held his goal call.

A few notes: if you've watched every match of the World Cup so far on Univision, you've spent exactly 27 minutes of your life listening to the word ¡GOL!. The average ¡GOL! is 9.82 seconds long; the median is 11 seconds. (If the ¡GOL! is starred, that means the announcer actually said ¡GOLAZO!) Goals scored in penalty shootouts are omitted, because few of them prompt a proper ¡GOL!.


Pressed for time? Here's a version of the above video sped up to 1,000%.
