It was rather like the touch we used to know. Remember his bouncer, the one where he would squish the ball between turf and boot and in one motion trick a keeper to ground as a shot spun just high enough to beat him? He could kill with his grace back then, when he was less ornamental.

How marvellous to see it again on Tuesday. To see those instincts for the perfect strike, the sense of timing, the ingenuity of the act, and maybe it was the last time.
