Posted by

Following our opening goal of the game, the players ran to celebrate with the supporters and this led to our No.5 delivering a message to his teammates.

Pointing to his head, the man who went on to win the player of the match award was clearly telling the rest of the Reds (in space purple) to remain focused for the remainder of the game.

Seeing as we went on to score again and book our place in the fourth round, it’s safe to say that they listened to the Frenchman.
