"It made him happy," laughed the right-back afterwards. "I also tried this once with my left foot during training. Then I hit the post. But then I already thought: oh, so my left foot can do that."
His goal was preceded by a controversial moment. In the run-up to the goal, the ball appeared to have gone over the sideline. It took the VAR a long time to check whether or not that was the case. In the end, the goal was allowed.
Mazraoui immediately thought of Real Madrid away in the UEFA Champions League in the 2018/2019 season, where the same thing happened. "The sidelines are haunting me," the fullback joked.
"The wait was long. Now I was the one who scored the goal. This time it happened to Daley Blind, so I also asked him whether the ball had gone out or not. He could not say with 100 percent certainty. I would have been very disappointed if such a goal was disallowed. Fortunately, that did not happen."
Difficult match in Eindhoven
Ajax did not have an easy time against PSV. The right-back thought so too. "Little spaces were allowed on both sides. That made it a real battle. But we are the frontrunner again!"
