So are you excited about soccer yet? Fox Sports is banking on some new eyeballs watching the Manchester United vs. Real Madrid UEFA Champions League showdown today, as excitable hoops talking head Gus Johnson makes his futbol broadcasting debut. It’s halftime as I type this, and Gus has had a chance to call two goals — it’s 1-1.

See and hear his first two goal calls here.

How’s he doing? I’m no huge soccer fan, but I’m liking it … he’s bringing a touch of excitement without going overboard. “Ronaldo turns, fires!” Of course, if you can’t make Man U.-Real Madrid interesting, there is no hope for you as a soccer announcer.

Anyway, as with all things, Twitter has the final word. Let’s check the verdict on Gus so far.
