Frank Lampard is delighted for Alex Iwobi after scoring a last-gasp goal to help 10-man Everton beat Newcastle 1-0 at Goodison Park on Thursday.
The Nigeria International sent the entire Goodison Park into a frenzy after he combined with Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score in the 90+9 minute of the game as 10-man Everton ended a four-game losing streak by beating Newcastle United.
Manager Frank Lampard revealed that he broke his hand in celebration of the goal and also revealed how happy he was that Alex Iwobi was the goal scorer.
The former Chelsea manager said the goal was a reward for Alex Iwobi’s hard work and that he needs to now believe more in himself going forward.
“He trains so well. You see how hard he works,” said Lampard.
“I’m delighted he’s the man that gets the goal to win it for us.
“He needs to believe in himself more because we know the quality he has.
“It was an amazing night and we need those nights. Spirit and togetherness, the players stood up tonight.
“It was not a night for quality or calm. It means so much to the stadium we all felt that. I wanted to use the atmosphere.
“Everton fans wanted to see passion. We proved what we could be tonight.”
