Best ever for Jamie

Posted on 14 August 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Jamie Redknapp says his stunning strike against Lazio on Sunday is as good a volley as he's ever hit.

The stylish midfielder marked his White Hart Lane debut with a memorable goal on what proved to be a memorable occasion for our recruit from Liverpool.

"I think that's as good a strike as I've probably hit ever on the volley, to be honest," pondered Jamie. "It was good, I really enjoyed it and the fans were fantastic to me - it meant a lot to me when they gave me a good ovation when I went off.

"They are the sort of things you never forget and I really enjoyed it," he added, before agreeing with Glenn in wishing the goal had been saved for Premiership action.

"I do, I would much rather it had been against Everton away. I would be nice if I can do one then.

"It was nice and I enjoyed it. It was obviously nice to score, but I thought we played some great stuff in the first 40 minutes.

"We let it slip it a bit in the second half but, for me, it showed how much they wanted to win when they scored - they were all right over to Crespo celebrating.

"They didn't want to get beaten so with their squad I think it was a really good effort. We had a couple of players missing through injury and I think we played really well."

While he relished his first appearance at the Lane in a friendly, Jamie is certainly looking forward playing there for real.

"I can't wait, I really enjoyed making a sort of debut there the other day and hopefully I shown people what I can do and that I'm fit."
