I was very nervous, but when Ronaldo scored his goal I knew we were going to win. Five minutes from the final whistle I entered the field, without really getting heated, and I did not touch the ball, but it was one of the best moments of my career.

The second encounter that marked him was the 3-3 against Liverpool in the final of the Champions League in 2005. His club lost when he had three goals in advance, but Kaká was able to draw the positive side of defeat: « That day I realized that in football you can not consider a match as being won in advance.
