West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph has told the club's official website that he felt Michail Antonio's goal against Liverpool was 'brilliant'.
The Hammers advanced into the last 16 of the FA Cup on Tuesday night, beating Liverpool 2-1 at Upton Park in a dramatic encounter.
Winger Antonio opened the scoring in the first half with a superb back post volley, before Philippe Coutinho equalised with a clever free kick in the second half.
It was West Ham who got the win though, as in the dying seconds of injury time, Angelo Ogbonna powered home a header from Dimitri Payet's cross, scoring his first goal since signing from Juventus over the summer.
In a memorable night at Upton Park, many players enjoyed superb performances, and goalkeeper Darren Randolph was one of those players, taking his chance having come in for first-choice stopper Adrian.
After the game, Randolph reflected on the win during an interview with the West Ham official website but focused on the two goalscorers rather than his own display, and claimed that Antonio's volley was 'brilliant'.
He also spoke about Ogbonna's first West Ham goal, saying he deserved it after a 'brilliant' performance against a strong Liverpool team.
"He [Antonio] made it look easy, but technically trying to keep a ball like that down and actually get it back across the goal into the corner, as he did, was brilliant," said Randolph.
"There’s no better time for him to get a goal, he was brilliant all night. Everybody was, everyone needed to put in a shift, we knew it was going to be a tough night. It was obviously a stronger Liverpool team than in the first game and then you look at who they were bringing off the bench as well. I’m pleased for Angelo, he definitely deserves it," he added.
