Euro 2012 SF: (Portugal vs Spain) - Sergio Ramos Awarded Man of the Match
On his chip penalty shot -
“I planned this. I’d been thinking about this in advance. It was a risk, of course, but I also had the confidence. I’ve seen how the goalkeeper moves so I was pretty sure he would go one way. I’m very happy my family and my future kids have something to remember.”
“After the experience with Real Madrid in the Champions League, it was said I wasn’t ready to take another one, but I was feeling very confident and now I’m proud.”
“My coach knows me very well and he trusted I could do this. He’s spent many years with me and he knows I’m a little crazy.”

'Arsenal F.C. one of 16 in 160 English clubs contacted to sign up for Football V Homophobia'
Arsenal are one of only 16 clubs out of 160 in England’s top seven divisions who have responded positively having been asked to promote a campaign to stamp out homophobia.
Contacted to take an active part in the Football v Homophobia campaign, the Gunners have quite rightly indicated they are willing to publicise the drive; a state of affairs which is in marked contrast to fourteen other Premier League clubs who have avoided any such commitment.
“Football has the power to bring people together in a unique way and we believe there should be no barriers to feeling a sense of belonging to Arsenal Football Club.
“This is something we will continually drive – particularly through our Arsenal for Everyone initiative – which aims to create an inclusive atmosphere for our fans, staff, players and followers – whoever they are and wherever they’re from.”
I’m so proud of my club that I literally have tears in my eyes. Of course there is still much to be done, but still, I’m so proud. Not only because of their views on how everyone is equal and that there should be no discrimination, but also the fact that they stepped up to the plate when other clubs refused.
