Oviedo: Goal Was For The Fans

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

Bryan Oviedo has dedicated his Old Trafford winner to the Everton supporters.

The Costa Rican international popped up on the end of an 86th-minute Blues attack to earn a first victory at Manchester United since 1992.

And while Oviedo has only been on Merseyside for a small fraction of that time, the 23-year-old knows - and heard - exactly what the win meant to Everton's fanbase.

Speaking to evertontv after the final whistle, he said: "I feel very happy. That goal is very important for me. It's a dream for me to score at Old Trafford and it's a very good win for the team.

"We work very hard every week to win these games. We have been preparing for the last three or four days for this one.

"I am very grateful for the supporters because they are very important at every game. We play away but we feel like we're at home because they support us so well all game. That is very good for me and my friends.

"This win is for all Everton fans."

Bryan and Everton will be back at Goodison Park on 14 December to take on Fulham. Click here to book your seat to join them.
