Dennis BergkampThe Seconds of the Greats


In conversation with David Winner in Issue One of The Blizzard, the great Dutchman describes arguably the greatest goal he ever scored: Holland v Argentina, World Cup quarter final, Marseille, 5 July 1998, in the 90th minute.

"I love good football, nice football but it has to mean something. It has to bring me somewhere. And that’s what happened with this goal. At that moment I thought about when I was seven or eight years old, playing football in the house, you know? This is the moment!"

“You know, sometimes you have these moments where you think ‘This cannot go wrong! No Way!’ After the first two touches... that moment! You give absolutely everything in that movement. It’s like your life has led up to that moment”. 

Footballing genius lies in the ability to analyse and solve problems creatively under pressure at unimaginable speed. As Ajax manager David Endt, sitting in on the conversation noted, “the seconds of the greats last longer than those of normal people”.
Dennis nodded.
