We carry on our 'reflections' of winning the cup by reading what Kanu had to say to sky sports after netting the goal that saw us crowned 2008 FA cup winners.
King Kanu, who has won just about everything that there is to win in the club game believes that winning the cup with us tops everything else: 'they call me king. I have to deliver and hopefully I did. I have to thank God - God made it possible for me to score.
'This is the best moment of my life. I started the game and I won the cup for Portsmouth. I have felt nothing like this.'
Earlier in the game some fantastic skill from Kanu saw him beat his marker, round the keeper but he could only hit the post... he could have let that beat him but he bounced back and he says his - and our attitude - not to give in made the difference in the end: 'I kept going, I kept my head down and I scored. You have to take your chance and that's what I did.
'Portsmouth is not one of the four big clubs, no-one could believe we were going to do it and we did it.'
With a place in next seasons uefa cup secure he is looking to play his part in our European tour, so he hopes he is able to get a new deal: 'I hope the fans, Harry, everyone at the club will remember this day and they are going to give me a contract.
'I love the supporters and I want to be part of the team that plays in the Uefa Cup.
'That is football, you keep waiting and finally you have to make a decision. I have got a one year contract ready. I will be here for another year.
'Being in Europe means a lot to the players because most of them haven't been there or won medals.'
Quite what the future will bring for Kanu I am unsure, and to be honest at this point of time very undecided... I just want us, and him to enjoy this moment for a while longer yet!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
