“I felt like physically our team was stronger than the opponent and they started to run out of gas and we were feeling fresh. That was one of the key things that we have been working on in the last three, four weeks to keep everyone fit and make them even fitter. We really wanted to win tonight. We made substitutions to win. We wanted to give something to our fans today that made the stadium complete. And I think the key was to stay patient but to play to win until the very end. We knew this game was very important and I think at the end it is more than deserved.”


“In front of me, there are players giving their heart and soul to get these results. Of course at the end of the day you can bring this back to me but I like to see the group as a whole. Tonight, there wasn’t a shot on target from New England and that shows the character and solidarity of our team and our defensive effort. It is an honour for me. I knew the record was held by Evan Bush who was a mentor of mine and someone I admired. It is a privilege for me to be in the same conversation.”


“It was amazing. We were already playing a good game and the crowd was behind us. In the second half especially, we were dominating, we just kept pushing and it just happened to be me that scored. The roof just raised and I felt amazing.”
