Zidane's Goal in the UEFA Champions League Final

It appears some took my previous post praising Zidane to heart. Here is a video with the call of Zidane's goal in the UEFA Champions League final--in Spanish. An example of a good thing taken too far:




After all the "no ways" and "goal, goal, goal, goals," here's a truncated translation of what the announcer says next (minus the repetitions):
Madrid is ahead!
Zizou!
For some he is the best player in the world!
For some he is Zinedine Zidane!
For some he is number 5!
For some he is the King of the pitch! (literally the Marquis of the grass.)
The greatest!
Long live the mother who gave you birth!
Zinedine Zidane!
Super Goal!
It gave me goosebumps!
Zidane!
It is spectacular! Amazing!
I take my hat off to you.
Long live the mother who gave you birth!


Here's another clip; still hyperbolic, but at least sane:
