8) Let's play a game. Thirty seconds from the end of the game you are with your team on the result of 2-2, the referee from a penalty against. What do you think under the helmet when you see your opponent getting ready for the penalty shoot-out?

8) I breathe out and try to empty my head, be as relaxed as I can so I can be as fast and spontaneous as possible. During his way towards the goal, I am trying to affect his decisions.
