The guys in front of me were fantastic, every now and then it’s up to the goalkeeper to come up with the save and I was lucky enough to do that tonight.
So they say they've approved 95% of the permits. Let's be more optimistic and assume that they approve 99%. What's the point if the 1% includes the head coach, captain or goalkeeper of the national team? Or those of a visiting team? Will any association accept to play without all or any of these? It's about the principle, not statistics. Footballers should not be denied to move at all.
We believe that those sports who want to try and go first, they do try and set the very best practices, we were very impressed by the comments of Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who was saying that, yes this is a leadership example, we as players have to step up to the mark. And, when it comes to health and safety, the leagues and the governing bodies need to do the same.
I believed our goalkeeper would save one, and the technique of our players in taking them was superb. I have to credit our big support team who have done a lot of work in that area over the last few months.
You have a goalkeeper who makes difficult things look easy, thank you very much.
