Gudmundur Benediktsson is making a name for himself at EURO 2016, and no he’s not a player on the Iceland national team.

Benediktsson is an Icelandic commentator whose wild play call on Iceland’s winning goal over Austria went viral during the group stage.

While that win over Austria was at the time the biggest result in Icelandic football history, that all changed when the tiny island nation defeated England in the quarterfinals on Monday.

After falling behind 1-0 early, Iceland responded twice to take a 2-1 lead before the break, holding on through the second half to advance to the quarterfinals.

Benediktsson somehow still had a voice after the Austria match, and he let everyone hear it when Iceland took the lead.

When the final whistle blew, Benediktsson erupted in emotion once again, but was still able to take a shot at England in the process.

In case your Icelandic isn’t too sharp, here’s the translation from that final call.

“This is done! This is done! We are never going home! Did you see that! Did you see that! Never wake me from this amazing dream.”

“Live the way you want England! Iceland is going to play France on Sunday. France Iceland! You can go home. You can go out of Europe. You can go wherever the hell you want. England 1 Iceland 2 is the closing score here in Nice. And the fairytale continues.”

Well played, Gudmundur.
