Gus Johnson's Fox Soccer Debut Generates Social Media Buzz

Gus Johnson is getting solid marks on Twitter today in calling his first match for Fox Soccer, a UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tilt between Real Madrid and Manchester United.

MLSSoccer.com's Matthew Doyle wrote, "Three rules for play-by-play: Get the names right; don't overtalk; rise to the big moments. Johnson has hit all 3 marks today." Sporting News' Jesse Spector wrote, "A lot of the blame goes to Fox, dropping Gus on us for a super-huge game. Makes it feel like a stunt." ESPNW.com's Beau Dure wrote, "Gus Johnson's doing just fine. Nice job to do the goal call, back off for crowd noise, then let [co-commentator Warren] Barton analyze." The Orlando Sentinel's Paul Tenorio wrote, "At end of day he's not bad, but lacks the knowledge of game that soccer announcers add to their PxP. Little things."
