Jags Penalty Delight

Jags speaks after scoring the winning penalty in the FA Cup semi-final.

Jags Penalty Delight

Phil Jagielka had to overcome penalty nerves before slotting home the winning spot-kick.

The defender was Everton’s fifth kicker and capitalised on two saves made by keeper Tim Howard to win the semi-final clash with Man Utd.

Jagielka also exorcised personal demons after a miss in the Uefa Cup tie with Fiorentina last season.

After the game, he told evertonTV: “It was fantastic that the boys before me and T-How (Howard) put me into that position and thankfully this time it worked to our advantage.

“I wasn’t too sure about taking a penalty after last time but there weren’t too many specialists left on the pitch so I said I would go last. Thankfully it was the glory goal.”

Howard took plenty of plaudits after saving United’s first two penalties.

“It’s about time Tim started saving some penalties!” joked Jagielka. “He’s been getting close in the last few years but he was fantastic and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

“I think they had a few experienced lads in their squad who have taken penalties before, but thankfully we got the luck.”

The win sets up a clash with Chelsea on 30 May, and Jags is predicting another amazing day for the travelling Evertonians.

“It will be fantastic,” he beamed. “The amount of noise that the fans made today was absolutely frightening. If the winner was decided on fans’ noise then we would have won hands down.

“It’s a big game against Chelsea now on Wednesday, they keep coming thick and fast.”

Thomas McCarteni must admit i shed a tear or 2 when those penalties went in, every player in blue was outstanding yesterday, but i really have to give extra praise, for tim howard, baines, neville, vaughn, & jags, it took imense bottle to step up under so much pressure, yet you done it, & gave so many blues a dayout that will live with them forever, judgeing from the sea of blue inside the ground, we could have sold out the stadium twice over. from kenwright to moyes to the players, to the fans, we are everton & that says enough, no matter what happens at wembley in may our boys have made it one cup run that we will remeber for a verry long time, ive never been more proud as a lifelong blue as i was yesterday, coyb.

Katie Flanaganamazing atmosphere at wembley, and it showed us fans are behind yous coz even when cahill missed we were still cheering for him, couldnt hear the man u fans all game. I was a bit suprised with Phil Neville taking a penalty but welll done to him and the rest of the penalty takers for stepping up to take one. but howard was great saving two penalities. Win or lose in the final all the supporters will still be behind use 100%. keep it up boys

Christine HopeNot one of our better games but the BEST result.....think Mr. Riley proved he can be a half decent ref and why all the fuss about the penalty that wasnt with Jags and Wellbeck and no fuss made at the other end with Tevez and Pienaar which could quite easily have been a penalty ...anyway ...well done to the lads and to the penalty takers (hard lines Timmy) cos have read that no one really wanted to take them...and even though i credit the win to ALL the lads my man of the match was Stevie Pienaar, as usual he never gave to beat the other blues now.......

Steven BroadbentWhat an amazing atmosphere and we sung from the very start to the penalties! It's great that Tim Howard had the mind strength to save after Tim missed the peno, and it's fantastic that our most in-form player recently Jagielka won the Penalties to get us in the final. Come on You Blues xx

Stephen EvansI cried when Tim missed first up, but not as much as I cried with delight when Jags scored the winner, congrats individually to you and Bainsey (a blue star now established) the futures bright the futures BLUE, I last witnessed a penalty shoot out victory v Borrusia M in 1970 / 71 when Andy Rankin saved what was described as the £40k penalty. Whatever happens now in the competition we are moving closer to winning a cup and under David Moyes we can again hold our heads high, compared to City, Spurs and Villa and the vast amount of money spent and we are still the only realistic challenge to the so called top four
