"You can go home, get out of Europe, just go where you like"

Iceland's now world famous commentator Guðmundur Benediktsson lost his voice again last night in an emotional commentary when Iceland beat England 2-1. Here is our translation of the final commentary.  

"This is over.. its over... look at this.. we are not.. going home..we are going to Paris... we are never going home... this is finished... I can't believe my eyes... this is.. this is over... never wake me up... never wake me up from this crazy dream... Iceland... is going.. to Stade de France...on Sunday..  France... Iceland... England.. you can boo as much as you like... just go home... go home... get out of Europe.. go anywhere you like.. Iceland won.. that's the final result..."
