Actually the correct attribution should be Robbie Mustoe, the color commentator for the game. He was working with play by play guy Adrian Healey.

Derek Rae and Tommy Smyth did the first game, Croatia v Germay.

Actually that was Robbie Mustoe who said that, working with Adrian Healey.

Did you happen to catch the nut shot during the Greece-Sweden game a few days ago? A Greek player going for the ball kicked a Swedish player right in the nuts. No real comment from Adrian Healey although he mentions that the player who got kicked has problems lasting 90 minutes.
