During his first season as an NFL analyst, Tony Romo was known for two things: making strange high-pitched squeal noises and predicting plays before they happen. And since Fox Sports World Cup analyst Stu Holden already has a high-pitched voice, all he had to do was predict a play to become the soccer analyst version of Tony Romo. So naturally, that’s exactly what he did.
While calling Spain and Portugal’s instant classic of a World Cup game, Stu Holden perfectly predicted Spain’s second goal.
With Manchester City midfielder David Silva standing over a dangerous free kick, Holden suggested that Spain would probably look to chip the ball to the back post so they can head it back across the face of goal for man-amongst-boys striker Diego Costa to bury. And guess what happened?
If the first day of the 2018 World Cup was any indication, then this year’s tournament is going to be an absolute classic. The first two games of the day were decided on “buzzer beaters” (stoppage time goals), while the final game was a 3-3 shootout thriller fueled by a Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick.
