Cantona on One-on-One Situations

"I worked a lot and I was relaxed. You have to find the timing when the goalkeeper comes towards you. If he's too close, you don't have the angle to score a goal. If he's too far, then you are too far and you won't be strong enough to be precise. When the goalkeeper is three metres away is good. That's when you score the goal."

"When I was young I used to miss. I tried to understand why I scored in training but not in the game. It was about timing. It's the same for the dribble. If a defender is too close you can't dribble; if he is too far away then he can anticipate."
