You hope to bring your 'A Game' to any game, and of course you do in a final. You hope to bring experience, fitness, communication skills, motivational skills.
Every flaw you have or lapse of concentration can cost you a goal, so you have to be on your toes every minute of the game.
Coming to Old Trafford gave me a new lease of life.
I remember that, often, Mike Phelan would just nip down to the touchline for a message to one or two players. It was usually just a tactical thing. But when Sir Alex comes to the touchline, all the players know that it's serious stuff.
My career record was 5-2 in penalty shootouts.
You know you're in for a tough time if you're trailing and the other teams are doing well.
