Norwich City-conqueror Green revels in wonderful Portsmouth FA Cup moment
FA Cup specialist Andre Green toasted another dramatic winner as Pompey created a Carrow Road shock.Â
The on-loanÂ Villa player registered a last-gasp strike to earn victory at Rochdale in the previous round.
And today the substitute repeated his remarkable trick to claim a memorable 1-0 triumph at Premier League-chasing Norwich.
The hosts had been playingÂ with 10 men following Grant Hanley's 15th-minute sending off for a challenge onÂ Ronan Curtis.
Yet the third-round encounter appeared destined for a Fratton Park replay '“Â then Green struck at the death.
He said; '˜The celebrationÂ was a bit of a blur, my adrenaline took over, I didn't know I was going to run all that way back to the fans!
'˜I am thankful today, it was a bit of luck. I need to take my opportunities and feel like I have been.
'˜The goalÂ went in slow motion, I saw the ball coming over knowing I had to get this touch perfect '“butÂ it wasn't a perfect touch. I gave myself a bit too much to do.
'˜I had to take on two people and get a bit of luck with the ricochet and am just thankful it came back to me, I was there in the right place at the right time.
'˜To be fair, my legs were going after that long run, mentally it's hard when you are going into the last minutes and need to score.
'˜But that's what we get paid to do and play under pressure.'
