Under 20 World CupWonderful moment from commentator John Helm during this morning’s 3-2 win by Brazil v Portugal in the FIFA U-20 WOrld Cup Final. (Great game, by the way.)

John Helm (born in 1942, in Baildon, Yorkshire, England) is a British sports commentator with over 25 years of network television experience, mainly with ITV. Now he is the voice of international broadcasts of the FIFA World Cup and other events. Helm has also frequently covered other sports – in the main golf, cricket and particularly rugby league both for ITV and other broadcasters.

Noting that Brazil seemed to like winning the competition in years ending with “3” – 1983, 1993, and 2003 in their previous five wins, to be precise – Helm noted “and this year, a year ending with eleven”.

Well, yes it is, John. Undeniably. But we suspect you really meant “One”. 😉
