I am humbled that my free kick in 1997 is remembered so fondly and i’m honoured to be inducted into the first MAN OF THE MATCH(R) ICONS Hall of Fame.

Choosing ten other players to join my team for their iconic moments gave me great joy and brought back some wonderful memories.

I wish I could have chosen two teams! I look forward to sharing the NFT artwork award with one of my fans!”
