West Ham hero Ogbonna thrilled for Hammers faithful

West Ham United match-winner Angelo Ogbonna was thrilled after scoring a winner in the 121st-minute of the 2-1 FA Cup fourth round replay win over Liverpool.

The game seemed destined to head to the penalties before the 27-year-old Italian defender put a header into the net from Dimitri Payet's free-kick to open up his scoring account for the East London club.

"I am very happy to score this goal in the last minute," he said on BT Sport.

"I am really pleased for the supporters, for my team because everybody wants to go through so I am really happy."

West Ham earlier led through Michail Antonio's lovely finish before Philippe Coutinho responded for Liverpool prior to Ogbonna's late heroics to send Slaven Bilic's men into a fifth round clash with Blackburn Rovers.
