Williams reflects on Reds win
Young wing-back Brandon Williams discusses how he earned United's match-winning penalty against Partizan...
First of all, well done, what was the experience like playing in this hot atmosphere in Belgrade? Different to England. The atmosphere was crazy but the boys came through it and got the three points. A clean sheet as well so we came away happy. How noticeable was the crowd out there on the pitch? You can hardly hear anything but you’re more focused on playing and doing what you want to do. You block it out. We were playing a back three, at least to start with, so do you enjoy playing the wing-back role? It gives me more chance to advance forward, which I like doing, but also get back defending, which I like doing as well. So it’s a good formation to play in. You were heavily involved in the goal – what do you remember of that run? I just remember, before the game, they told me to get at the full-back. I just knew. I took it down the line and waited for the foul to come. I suppose if you wanted anyone to take it, Anthony was able to keep a cool head despite the boos… He did well to keep calm and scored what turned out to be the winning goal. There was a lot of defending to do, heading it away a lot in the second half… You’ve got to stay focused and just clear it. The first thing is to get the ball away. It’s been a while now since our last away win so does it feel like a really big one after we had to dig in here? I think PSG was the last away win so now we can take this positive and move on. We’ve got games coming thick and fast.
