Javier Garrido was delighted with his free-kick strike in Manchester City's win at Wolves.

Garrido scored with a stunning free-kick and revealed his practising of set- pieces paid off as he curled his 20-yard shot around the Wolves defensive wall and goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann.

He said: "I stay behind after training some days and work at free-kicks alongside Carlos Tevez, Craig Bellamy and Robinho and it has paid off.

"Carlos wanted to take the kick but I asked him to let me have a try because in that moment I felt so confident I could score.

"Perhaps the goalkeeper was surprised and was expecting someone else to take the kick but the ball did exactly as I wanted it to and it was an important goal in an important game.

"We have great players here who are better than me at free-kicks so I had to take the chance when I felt it was right."
