Lindelof shared about the decisive penalty for MU
After Solly March ended up in the sky in the seventh penalty kick, Victor Lindelof stood before the opportunity to bring victory for MU. And at 11m, the Swedish player made no mistake when facing Robert Sanchez with a cool finish that hit the roof of Brighton.
Thereby, MU won Brighton with the final score of 7-6 on penalties to enter the FA Cup Final 2022/23. After the game, Lindelof revealed the moment he stepped up to take the decisive penalty.
Midwife in 1995 shared with the BBC:
“It was really great after that moment. Even more amazing when I helped MU win against Brighton to put my name in the Final.
Before the penalty shootout, I volunteered to take the kick that I felt was appropriate. When it was my turn to kick, I stepped up and believed in myself without thinking about anything else. And fortunately, I successfully finished to help the home team win the match.
I feel this is a game where MU defended well. Brighton also played not bad today, they held the ball very confidently. But MU is the better team and won the ticket to play in the FA Cup Final.”
In this season, Lindelof only plays a supporting role. He does not play often but still knows how to prove his worth when given the opportunity.
Defeating Brighton, Lindelof and MU will face Man City in the 2022/23 FA Cup Final. The Citizens previously easily defeated Sheffield Utd with a score of 3-0.
