Argentina’s legendary goalkeeper during the Italy 1990 World Cup, Sergio Goycochea, suffered just like a child during Argentina’s penalty shootout win vs. Colombia in the semi finals of the Copa America.
“Goyco”, who is one of the commentators for TV Pública during their broadcasts of Argentina’s matches throughout this Copa America, was recorded by his co-workers during the agonic that was the penalty shootout vs. Colombia.
“Throw it over the crossbar. Over the crossbar!”
Those were Goycochea’s words when Edwin Cardona was about to kick Colombia’s last penalty. When Emiliano Martínez saved it, “Goyco” started jumping and celebrating as millions of Argentina fans did.
No stranger to penalty shootouts or the Copa America, “Goyco” took part in two penalty shootouts for Argentina at the 1990 World Cup, winning both of them. He was also part of the Argentina team which won the 1991 and 1993 Copa’s America.
