“Was it or not, that is the question? I should charge people money every time they ask me about it. As for me, the goal was. The referee with his count. I really hesitated then two seconds because none of the teammates were not around at this moment. Even thought: “Oh my God! Maybe the goal really was not!”. But turning around, I saw the chief judge and the linesman ran to the center of the field, and began to cry from joy.

Jose still boils from this. I know him well still from Barcelona, he tried to sign me to his “Port”. He always denies my goal, in his place I would do the same. But then after the semi-finals he came up to me and wished success in the finals,” – commented on the goal of its author.

We will remind, in the final, Liverpool have created one of the main comeback in football history, beating AC Milan.
