In his first game back after an ankle injury sustained while warming-up for a World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica had ruled him out since early September, Bradley scored what turned out to be the winning goal and the commentator was suitably ecstatic.

The radio announcer embarks on an elongated description of his joy and can be heard shouting “Lex Luthor”, to whom Bradley bears a slight resemblance, multiple times.

According to Wikipedia…

Alexander Joseph “Lex” Luthor is a fictional character, a supervillain appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Luthor is the archenemy of Superman, and as a high-status supervillain, has also come into conflict with Batman and other superheroes in the DC Universe.

Luthor is a wealthy, power-mad business magnate of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess. Luthor’s goals typically center on killing Superman, the foremost obstacle to achieving the villain’s megalomaniacal goals. Despite periodically wearing a powered exoskeleton, Luthor has traditionally lacked superpowers or a dual identity.

The commentary is attributed to Carlo Zampa, a passionate AS Roma fan who has also worked as a parliamentary assistant to the Italian Senate.
