Nigerian Danny Shittu says “words cannot describe” the feeling after he headed Millwall into the FA Cup semi-finals.
The centre-back celebrated wildly as he scored the only goal in the replay with Blackburn to set-up a Wembley clash against Premier League side Wigan.
“Words cannot describe it,” the 32-year-old said. “To have got the goal means so much, I’m happy for the lads and for the gaffer Kenny Jackett. It is a big day and either side can win when we play Wigan.”
While the Lions were the better team in the tie, Shittu’s goal came from a first-half corner which replays suggested should not have been awarded.
“We have had plenty of decisions go against us, and perhaps that is a crucial one that has gone for us,” manager Kenny Jackett said.
“But, it was a great header from Danny Shittu for the goal. We want to go there and win, that is what Wembley is about.”
