Video: Alex Morgan’s game winning goal vs Canada

Alex Morgan scored this impossibly dramatic late game-winner to defeat Canada 4-3 in extra time in a definite game of the year contender in the Olympic semifinals.  The goal is spectacular… and so is the call by NBC's Arlo White, whose voice cracks in excitement and amazement over what he has just seen.  (I couldn't hear the call initially from screaming at my own television.)  White was phenomenal throughout the game setting the scene at Old Trafford and dropping lines like "seeing the whites in the goalkeeper's eyes" with ease.  We spotlighted him as an announcer on the rise to watch before the tournament, and he was given a showcase game to shine today.  And oh yea, Alex Morgan deserves her fair share of plaudits too.
