Schillo cherishes ‘second headed goal’


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.”
