Ask any of his team-mates – Fredi Kanoute was always capable of producing something extra-ordinary.
And this goal, now almost 12 years ago, came right out of the top drawer, absolute world class.
It was goalless against the Toffees with half-time approaching. Kasey Keller hit a goal-kick upfield, no danger there. Fredi rose to flick the ball on, still little threat of a goal. Gus Poyet played it back into Fredi's path and bang, the striker hit an unstoppable dipping volley beyond Nigel Martyn to open the scoring.
Gus and Robbie Keane completed the scoring in a 3-0 win and Kasey, who spoke to us before last week's match against his former club Leicester City, didn't need much prompting to remember Fredi's bolt from the blue.
"Fredi had so much talent,” he said. “What I most remember about him is that most guys will jump to meet a high ball and flick it on but Fredi was able to jump, lean back and bring the ball down with his chest! He had a goal like that in his locker and certainly did it that day."
