My ankle is hurt but when there's so much at stake you forget about the pain.

"I always take the fourth penalty because of superstition, not because I calculated that it could be the winning penalty if it ended up going in. My ankle is quite hurt and I was a bit scared because as time went by it got colder and more painful, but in the end when you know there's so much at stake you forget about the pain".
