WATCH: Icelandic commentator ‘calls’ Edmonds’ goal

For the fourth time in 12 games in this, the team’s inaugural National Women’s Soccer League season, the Orlando Pride scored a game-winning goal in the 79th minute or later.

On Sunday, against Boston, it came minutes after Orlando scored the equalizer, completing a wild turnaround which included a controversial red card (second yellow) for Breakers defender Brooke Elby, which led to the first goal for Orlando — a sublime free kick from Kristen Edmonds.

Edmonds scored the second goal minutes later, out-hustling the Breakers’ back line and goalkeeper Jami Kranich to lob the ball into the net. Edmonds took a hard hit from Kranich, and the Pride attacker went down holding her face. She reportedly does not have concussion symptoms and is expected to be available on Saturday against the Chicago Red Stars.

Edmonds’ game-winning goal completed a chaotic final few minutes of the match led by her heroics, and the Orlando Pride digital media team decided to have a little fun, laying the video of Edmonds’ winner over the audio of the Icelandic TV commentator who became famous last month as he screamed his head off as his country historically advanced to the tournament’s quarterfinals in its first appearance at the event, beating England in the Round of 16.

The result is spectacular:

Oh, Edmonds’ free kick to equalize was pretty darn good, too. No Icelandic commentary for that one, though…
