Screencap

Ruud van Nistelrooy had a long, successful career with the Dutch national team, representing the Oranje as recently as 2011. It should therefore come as no surprise that he wasn't exactly impartial during the dramatic finish to Netherlands-Costa Rica.

This was his reaction to the final penalty while in the ESPN studio. It looks more like relief than celebration, but it's 100 percent awesome.
