'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hugo Tells Roberto Yo puntuación


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has revealed that match winner Hugo Rodallega told him at half-time that he would score and low and behold that`s exactly what the Colombian hitman did.

Rodallega only returned to the UK at tea-time Friday following his international duty with Colombia as they played Ecuador and Uruguay in their World Cup qualifying bid, but his energy in yesterdays game suggested that he`d been resting at Christopher Park rather than jetting half way around the world and back in the space of 6 days.

Hugo took his goal really well, he `sniffed` it out and pounced when West Ham keeper Robert Green parried a Koumas effort following good work from N`Zogbia and Melchiot, it clearly meant a lot to the 24 year old striker and at the end of the game he seemed quite emotional.

Speaking to the clubs official website boss Martinez congratulated Rodallega on his efforts and told of his striker`s revelation, the Latics manager said:'He really earned his goal today after running himself into the ground all afternoon,'

'He gave everything for us today and he has that winning mentality, which is sometimes the difference between a winning and a losing dressing room.

'He wanted to score; at half-time he told me 'I'm going to score' and he was so sure of himself. So in that respect he worked hard for it and deserved his goal."
