Steven Pienaar cherishes special goal against Tottenham Hotspur

Steven Pienaar says his goal against Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend was extra special for two reasons.
Firstly, it was the equalising goal against his former club – and one which sparked a dramatic comeback win.
But more than that it was only Schillo’s second ever headed goal as a professional player, and it came more than a decade after the first.
“What can I say, the past is the past. Now I'm back at Everton and you give everything for the club you play for. That's what I do and I was just lucky to get a goal,” he told the Toffees’ official website.
“To score against your former club, it meant a lot to me and to the supporters. The timing was perfect. To score in the last minute, it was a special goal.
“The last [header] I scored was for Ajax in 2001 – my first goal in Europe. Today was only my second one so I'm quite pleased with it.”
