Following the impressive result, Konsa and Mings laughed about the incident in their post-match interview.
‘I’m heartbroken – nah I’m joking,’ Konsa laughed. ‘We got victory that’s all that matters.’
When asked who actually scored the goal, Mings said: ‘Me, unfortunately.
‘It’s cliche to come on here and say that the goal doesn’t matter because the three points is the most important thing but when you got the three points it’s also nice to score – it makes it even sweeter.’
