Has Berbatov Ever Seen A Tap-In?

Has Berbatov Ever Seen A Tap-In?

Dimitar Berbatov described his second goal as nothing else but a tap-in... Well, I fear his brain have been addled by the joy of scoring the first one...

"It`s a goal like any other," he said. "It was a tap-in and that was it, 3-0."

So, a brilliant volley that flies straight into the net from 12 yards is a tap-in? Oh well. Trezeguet's winner at Euro 2000 was a tap-in then, as Zidane's Champions League decider in 2002... which Berbatov witnessed in person as he was a member of the Leverkusen side which lost that final after knocking out United in the semis.

His extreme coolness is a tad exaggerated here: there's nothing shameful about being happy about a goal. It wasn't the greatest goal of all time but to call it a tap-in... a joke, really.

Easy, I once did the same tap-in five times in one game, smoke in one hand pint in the other.

What he means by that is that the whole work was done by his teammates and his sole contribution was a single touch, regardless how spectacular. In his mind he is craving for a goal after running 30 yards past 4 defenders, rounding the keeper and scoring with his heel.
