Umm not so much there buddy

BBC pundit Martin Keown has been making the rounds on YouTube and has become a trending topic on Twitter after mixing up two different American professional sporting organizations while broadcasting during the Euro Cup.

During the Portugal versus Czech Republic match, Keown was complimenting Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo on his athleticism and versatility when he described him as “like an NFL basketball player.” The NFL is the United States’ National Football League, while professional basketball players play in the NBA.

Keown is not the first pundit to make a harmless verbal gaffe; Simon Brotherton mistook David Silva for David Villa.
