Andrés Cantor
Ever wonder who the man is behind the famous “GOOALLLLL” call? If you follow the game of fútbol (soccer) you know that it is a fast-paced, low scoring game. When one team finally breaks through and scores, the crowd goes wild. And thanks to international acclaimed sports caster Andrés Cantor, you can hear when your favorite team scores from anywhere in the world on Telemundo. Cantor has been the lead play-by-play announcer for Telemundo since 2000. If you’ve ever listened to a soccer match called in Spanish, then you know just how fast paced play-by-play announcers talk to keep up with the speed of the match. 

Cantor made his English language debut as the play-by-play announcer for NBC Sports during the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. His hiring was the catalyst for NBC’s commitment to carry every Olympic soccer game over their various networks. Cantor is a key figure in the growth of in the U.S. and was named the 9th most influential person in the game of soccer by Soccer America magazine. FIFA named him one of the top 10 broadcasters in the world and singled him out as number one from North America, in any language.
