Obafemi Martins: It was the easiest goal I’ve ever scored

Obafemi Martins has told reporters that his winning goal in the FA Cup final was his easiest goal.

he said: “I think this is the easiest goal I’ve ever scored in my career – and it’s very important.

“I’m glad I scored today and I’m glad we won. I think it was my second touch. I’m very happy.

“The gaffer said to me that I would come on in the second half, so I think he did it right.

“It means a lot to the fans and players – we really need this trophy.”

McLeish expressed that he is delighted with his side’s performance.

He said: “It’s an achievement when you consider who we were up against.

“We weren’t given a prayer by the pundits and the bookies but we believed today. It was a titanic performance by the players.

“We had a gameplan and managed to get our noses in front, that gives you a great chance.

“We thought if we could keep in it for as long as we could we’d get the quick guys on who can win it for us.

“We didn’t deal with the equaliser well. Roger Johnson could have let it run out for a throw-in but he kept it in play.

“Too many of us were out of position and Robin van Persie’s movement for the goal was magnificent.

“But no doubt you need a little bit of luck – and we deserved it today.”
