Edu Vargas made a goal straight out of a FIFA video game in the Chile-Peru, Copa America seminfinal. Right after Gary Medel knotted up the count for Peru, Vargas saw open field and launched the ball from halfway between midfield and the goal. The ball sailed high and into the backside of the net to give host Chile the 2-1 lead, simultaneously launching the crowd and announcer Ray Hudson into a frenzy.

Even more amazing than the goal is the commentary Hudson uses to describe the goal: snap, crackle, pop, an absolute glitterbomb. It’s like I was actually there.
