John Terry has reflected on the night when he helped win the European Cup for Manchester United, after missing Chelsea’s fifth penalty in Moscow.
After Cristiano Ronaldo’s miss, Terry’s inability to score took the penalty shoot out to sudden death, which we won after Edwin Van der Sar saved Nicolas Anelka’s spot-kick.
I’ll definitely never be over it. I still wake up in the night now and it’s like “s***”, it’s there and then you go back to sleep. It’s eased over the years for sure. But I still have a few times a year when I wake up and, bang, it’s on my mind. It’ll never go. It’s one of those things, it’s disappointing, and I was gutted at the time. The worst thing was, we had England the following week, we played USA at Wembley and I had to go and sit at a table with all the Man United players. I was just sitting there fuming. I didn’t want to be there. It was a horrible time for me.
