    It wasn't ONLY Henri's shot that deserves credit!! What about these? the opening wide beginning position of the receiver (Henri) the eye contact between passer (Song) and receiver, the perfectly timed run into the channel, the wide-angle vision to see the run and passing channel, the subtle disguise before the pass, the perfectly timed, placed and weighted pass, the first touch away from pressure to balanced shooting spot, the well- placed-not-over-powered far post finish, the lack of pressure/narrowing on the passer, the lack of cover on the receiver? the slow defensive reaction and recovery to the pass? the too-close-to-goal cut off angle of the goalie?
