Was at that game. Sat on bucket seats at the back of the old north terrace, was a miserable horrible wet windy day. We were funting it long to Cascarino and some colourful character called Mickey Evans and getting nowhere with it. In the second half the Romanian goalie sliced his goal kick and it must have gone 100 feet in the air before spinning out to the touchline where Hagi was stood with the same wind and rain in his face as we had.
He killed it stone dead with one touch on his instep.
Small moment, but I can't recall ever being as impressed with a piece of skill in a soccer match before or since.
