"It was instinct. I looked up and thought: ‘This ball is so nice, it’s too beautiful to take a touch.’ Had it been half a metre to the left or right I couldn’t have hit it. Wayne and I had been talking about playing balls in behind the right centre-back all week. We’d talked about it in training almost every day, then before the game Wayne said: ‘Robin, don’t forget that ball, I’ll give you that ball today’. And it was the perfect pass, it was phenomenal. All I had to do was time my run correctly. In the last second I decided to hit it and I was lucky everything fitted together.”
