The clock was in the red at the end of the first half in the All-Ireland final when Darragh Ó Sé knew that Kerry were already beaten by Dublin.
Writing in the Irish Times, the six-time All-Ireland winner said that Philly McMahon's point to put Dublin ahead on double scores was, for him, the dagger in the Kingdom's hopes.
That score also meant that the Dublin corner-back had outscored Cooper in the opening 35 minutes of play.
The moment I knew Kerry’s goose was probably cooked was Philly McMahon’s point. He’s been scoring points all year but you wouldn’t worry too much about that on its own. What was really significant was that he sidestepped the Gooch.
First of all, the very fact the Gooch was back there playing as a defender told you Kerry’s gameplan wasn’t working. Colm was probably always going to have to do a bit of tracking back but this was different. This was him having to face up one-on-one to a guy who was full of confidence and fancied himself for a score. That’s no place for one of our greatest ever forwards to be.
Ó Sé also felt that a major flaw in Kerry's game was the lack of a player capable of antagonising McMahon as much as he does others.
Here's that score from the Ballymun man.
