Everyone is loving this Icelandic commentator's reaction to their win against England

He’s BACK.

THE WHOLE WORLD seems to be talking about Iceland’s unbelievable 2-1 win over England in the Euros last night.

During Iceland’s last match, a local commentator went viral after he absolutely lost it when their winning goal went in.

And last night he was at it again

And it was on the winning goal specifically where he fully lost his s**t

His name is Gudmundur Benediktsson and he’s now nearly as famous as some of the actual team.

What a legend

He had a way with words last night

He’s now the internet’s hero

Stick it on repeat

One. More. Time.
