Ogbonna revels in first West Ham goal

West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna was left beaming following his last-gasp winner against Liverpool in Tuesday’s FA Cup fourth-round replay.

Philippe Coutinho’s superb free-kick cancelled out  Michail Antonio’s first-half opener at  Upton Park, which sent the contest into extra-time.

With the game seemingly set to be decided via a  penalty shoot-out, Ogbonna rose highest to meet Dimitri Payet’s cross in the 121st minute and head past Simon Mignolet for a dramatic winner.

West Ham will now face Blackburn Rovers in the fifth round of the competition, but Ogbonna insisted his team-mates are remaining  grounded.

“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.”
