World famous soccer broadcaster Andrés Cantor is called 24 of the 64 FIFA World Cup matches live from Qatar for Telemundo this year. 

Cantor wasn't shy about using his beloved “Goool!” call, which has been heard in American soccer since the 1990s

From Spain’s 7-0 rout against Costa Rica to Argentine-American Cantor calling the final, here’s a look back at some of the best gol calls from the 2022 World Cup:

How many “goals” has Andres Cantor called in Qatar?

Cantor has cleared the lungs to deliver 71 World Cup goal celebrations from Qatar to Spanish-speaking audiences around the globe.

What’s the longest “goal” Cantor has called at the 2022 World Cup?

The longest “goal” that Cantor called in this year’s World Cup was 43 seconds after Brazilian forward Richarlison scored a goal to make it 3-0 for Brazil against South Korea.

The second-longest call from Cantor was 41 seconds when Nahuel Molina gave Argentina a 1-0 lead over the Netherlands in the quarterfinals.

There’s a tie for the third-longest “goal” that Cantor has called in Qatar and that is 40 seconds. In the match between the U.S. men’s national team and Iran, Christian Pulisic scored the opening – and only – goal for USA, which garnered a lengthy gol chant from Cantor. A chant that was possibly heard all the way in the United States. 

The following day, Mexico’s Luis Chávez scored the second goal for his team on the pitch against Saudi Arabia. Cantor yelled out another 40-second gol chant in celebration of the great free-kick goal. 

What’s the shortest “goal” Cantor has called?

While most of Cantor’s “goal” calls are longer in length, there were a few that err on the shorter side – sometimes being clipped by a VAR check or an offside. 

One of his shortest calls rang out for only three seconds when Álvaro Morata sealed the win and scored Spain's seventh goal against Costa Rica. 

Safe to say that after seven spectacular goals, even Cantor decides to take a bit of a chant break.

Has Cantor called two goals by the same player in Qatar?

Yes, and it didn’t take very long. 

The first player to receive the repeat treatment from Cantor was Ecuadorian forward Enner Valencia, who scored both goals for his team against Qatar in the opening match of the World Cup.
