Clive Tyldesley hilariously live-commentated on a REPLAY during North Macedonia vs Holland… and football fans loved it

ITV icon Clive Tyldesley accidentally live-commentated on a REPLAY during the Euro 2020 match between North Macedonia and Holland.

The veteran broadcaster got excited over a replay of Denzel Dumfries’ first-half chance for the Dutch, much to the delight of viewers across the UK.

In the 28th minute – with the score 1-0 to Holland – Dumfries got on the end of a low cross but his shot was stopped by goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski.

Two minutes later, the host broadcaster played a replay of the effort.

Tyldesley, forgetting what had happened just moments earlier, exclaimed: “And he’s in here again and it’s…”

At that point the excited commentator realised it was just a replay of the PSV star’s earlier chance.

Tyldesley isn’t at today’s game in Amsterdam due to Covid-19 restrictions – and it’s likely many fixtures will be commentated on from a studio.

He won’t be used to not being at the game having covered every major tournament since the World Cup in 1990.


The broadcaster’s mistake has been well received on social media, with one Twitter user writing: “Clive Tyldesley has got me in stitches.”

While another tweeted: “Clive Tyldesley thinking he was watching live play when it was actually a replay has somewhat made my day.”

Some viewers have even described it as their ‘highlight of the tournament’.

Tyldesley was replaced by talkSPORT regular Sam Matterface as ITV’s lead commentator in July 2020, a decision many disagree with.

The 66-year-old is one of the most popular commentators in the industry, with hundreds on social media loving his partnership with Rangers legend Ally McCoist at Euro 2020.
