Not just for his brilliance on the field, but for inspiring a marvellous television spat between Jimmy Hill and Alan Hansen about whether he should or shouldn't have hurtled out of his area to make a last-ditch tackle on Saturday. As it saved an obvious goal, you might have thought the answer was clear, but not to our Jimmy.
Was his celebration of his penalty six years after the Turin miss the highlight of the tournament so far? Probably not quite, but still pretty close
Accorded a reception at Lord's - from players as well as spectators - which few sportsmen ever receive, let alone officials, he was still up to giving the England captain out five balls into the match
For absolutely outstanding dullness as an anchor-man for the biggest sports event in Britain for 30 years - a mind-boggling achievement.
