The goalkeeper enlarges his cursed legend in a shoot-out in which he did not stop any of the 11 penalties and he missed his.

David de Gea couldn’t even cry. His face revealed only disappointment. Frustration Incomprehension. The goalkeeper of Manchester United he had just experienced a situation that is never forgotten. In the dramatic final batch that led to Villarreal’s triumph, David de Gea was not able to stop any of the eleven that were thrown at him. Neither had Gernimo Rulli. What difference does it make. The Argentine goal, when it was his turn to shoot, was right. De Gea did not. As if the black legend that accompanies him at key moments in his career refused to part with him. Hard to forget that de penaltis sign Muscovite in the Round of 16 of the World Cup in Russia in which he could not stop any of the four launches to which he was subjected.

Villarreal, on the other hand, could already exorcise those demons born also at the penalty spot in 2006, when Juan Romn Riquelme turned the dream of reaching the Champions League final into a nightmare. This time, not one of his footballers trembled at the maximum penalty. Either Pau Torres, Villarreal’s child, who scored 10-9 before Rulli and De Gea settled the task.

“I did not shoot a penalty since childhood”, confessed Ral Albiol. “The shootout was incredible. I am speechless. My family puts up with me every day. We had not rehearsed penalties. When we all got together in the pia of the extension we said that we were going to win. Because we deserved it. Because we are the host, “he said crying Dani Parejo.

There are no first times without anguish or suffering. In this extreme case. Neither without pica. There will be scenes that will last forever. Like the blood that seized the face of the Spartan Juan Foyth, impossible to contain after a furious blow to the knee of Pogba. The heroic resistance of Ral Albiol, a titan in the area at 35, against United’s positional dominance. The blankness of Solskjaer. The delivery of Cavani, another war veteran (34) who was once retired by PSG and who continues to honor the office of goalscorer … The Europa League won by Villarreal, a club that until then had only been able to raise two Intertotos Cups and a Third League, will also be remembered by Gerard Moreno. A footballer who He knew how to mature his talent on the margins of stardom. Until football could no longer look the other way.

The goal with which Gerard opened the game in Gdansk had much of that pillage with which Ral Gonzlez chisel his legend. Cavani He had unleashed a kick without rhyme or reason. Without repairing the Uruguayan veteran that this action was only going to confirm that Villarreal, after a first stretch of doubts, would think big. Parejo only had to stroke the ball with the appropriate thread. And Gerard Moreno, who saw her coming before any of his rivals, rushed to win the mark from the long-suffering Lindelf, a flan without the escort of the absent captain, the injured Maguire. The Swedish center-back tried to hold the Villarreal forward. I even grabbed his shirt. But destiny was already written. Gerard stretched out his leg and his touch with his right foot was already the coup de grace.

Born in Santa Coloma de Gramenet although raised in Santa Perptua de Mogoda, Gerard Moreno, which had in Ral Tamudo one of his great idols, he is completing a dream season. Has already marked 30 goals in 46 games, seven of them in the Europa League. He still has the Eurocup.
