TV commentator makes big mistake during Sergio Aguero's winning penalty for Man City

At the weekend, Sergio Aguero became Manchester City’s joint all-time goalscorer.

His penalty against Burnley draw him level with Eric Brook on 177 goals.

And on Tuesday, he attempted to create history during City’s Carabao Cup game with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Considering he was starting the game, many would have expected the Argentine to get himself on the scoresheet at some point.

However, incredibly, City failed to break down the Championship side during the 90 minutes - and 120 minutes.

It meant the match went into penalties.

While it wasn’t Aguero’s night during normal time and extra-time, he had his moment in the penalty shootout.

It fell to Aguero to seal passage into the next round and he did so with a very cheeky Panenka.


Of course, scoring in a penalty shootout doesn’t mean Aguero is now City’s top goalscorer.

However, nobody told the commentator.

He was setting the scene as Aguero stepped up to take his penalty.

“Aguero needs one goal to break the all-time City goalscoring record,” he said.

Oh deary me.


“Sergio Aguero for the City record books out on his own,” he continued just about as he was going to dink the penalty.

“You bet! With a Panenka,” he explained when Aguero sent City through to the next round of the cup.
