Angelo Ogbonna has told West Ham's official website that he 'really enjoyed' scoring the winning goal against Liverpool on Tuesday afternoon.
The Hammers advanced into the fifth round of the FA Cup with a dramatic win in their fourth round replay against Liverpool, with Michail Antonio scoring a superb volley to open the scoring on the stroke of half time.
Philippe Coutinho hit back with a clever free kick to draw Liverpool level, but as extra time was drawing to a close and penalties looked imminent, defender Ogbonna powered home a last-gasp header to send West Ham through.
Manager Slaven Bilic was visibly emotional after the final whistle, as Upton Park enjoyed one of its finest moments of the season as the move to the Olympic Stadium draws ever closer.
After the game, match-winner Ogbonna spoke to the club's official website, and focused on his first goal for the club since arriving from Italian giants Juventus over the summer.
Ogbonna admitted he 'really enjoyed' his goal, and praised the quality of the cross from team-mate Dimitri Payet, who served the ball on a plate for Ogbonna to score.
The centre back also looked ahead to the fifth round clash against Blackburn Rovers, and also celebrated a third win over Liverpool in four games against the Reds this season, with Jurgen Klopp's men scoring just once in those four matches.
"It was my first goal for West Ham and in front of our supporters, so I am really happy for my teammates, for everybody. I really enjoyed it," said Ogbonna. "I’m still excited, and I want to enjoy this moment. It’s unbelievable. It was a great ball from Dimitri, and Andy, Collins, we all could score [with service like that]."
"It’s a good result for us and we have to look forward to the next step now. We’ll enjoy this moment, but we will keep our feet on the ground. This is the fourth game we have played against Liverpool this season, and we have given them just one goal. We had a really good mentality, we defended together, attacked together, switched the ball and were really good on Tuesday," he added.
