The former Spain midfield maestro recalls his long-range effort against Real Betis in the November 2013 issue of FourFourTwo...
It’s only on reflection that you realise just how good Marcos Senna was. The focal point of Spain’s Euro 2008-winning side, the midfield heartbeat of Villarreal’s greatest ever team and voted La Liga’s player of the season in 2008, Senna’s list of achievements is not to be sniffed at. This spectacular goal against Real Betis in 2008 was but another feather in his finely plumed cap.
“It was an unforgettable day for me because in winning the match, it really helped Villarreal in the title race. We won, and with a really special goal,” he says of the 16th-minute wonder-strike from range that secured the Yellow Submarine all three points in a narrow 1-0 win, the year they finished second to Real Madrid – 10 points clear of Barcelona.
