Maniche's Portugal piledriver

We go back to UEFA EURO 2004 as Maniche recalls his memorable semi-final strike.

Hosts Portugal enjoyed a memorable run to the final of UEFA EURO 2004 and there were few sweeter moments than Maniche's classic goal in the semi-finals against the Netherlands. The midfielder tells us his memories of that strike as we break down the technique that enabled him to score from a seemingly impossible position.
