ATHLETIC 1-0 BARCELONA

Aduriz: These kind of things make football so beautiful

The 38-year-old came on to win the game for Athletic against Barcelona with his first touch - a perfect scissor kick past Ter Stegen.

Aritz Aduriz is retiring at the end of this season, so when the Athletic legend came on in the 88th minute in this Friday evening's Liga opener against Barcelona, he got a huge ovation from the fans in San Mamés. But that was nothing compared to the roar that greeted him as he wheeled away a minute later having buried a scissor kick past Ter Stegen with his first touch. The goal that would see Athletic win the game.

Aduriz dedicates goal to his family

Aduriz spoke after the match in a brief TV interview:

Barcelona

They're the best and coping with them for an entire game is really difficult. We aimed to beat them in every area of the pitch and at the end we got the result.

San Mamés

The support from our fans is incredible. It's amazing to see how the get behind us, in the way they do. We're delighted to have been able to give them something to be happy about.

Retiring

Everything in life has a start and a finish. I'm grateful to be able to choose to end things where I'm happiest.

The goal

Dedicated to my family and everyone who supports me. These kind of things make football so beautiful.
