Reflecting on his goal scoring display in the victory over Inter Milan, Kuyt said: "We are only halfway. But this is what we wanted. A victory of 1-0 was good, 2-0, with Gerrard was fantastic.
"Hopefully Van Basten was watching. I wanted this game to be very much like a little show. I wanted to prove that I can still play at this level. I think I was successful."
