Ogbonna says what we’re all thinking on Noble

Angelo Ogbonna insists that Mark Noble will score his next penalty after Hammers hearts were broken against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Hammers were in with a great chance of rescuing a point after falling 2-1 down.

Jesse Lingard, perhaps inevitably, was the player to score United’s second, after Said Benrahma saw his opener cancelled out by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lingard’s goal, a brilliant curling effort into the top corner, seemed set to be the winner until Luke Shaw was penalised for a handball in the area, and Noble was subbed on to take the spot-kick.

However, United goalkeeper David de Gea saved the penalty and United subsequently took all three points.

Oggy admits that the entire squad is united in sympathy for Nobes, whose penalty miss was his first since 2016.

And he insists that he will hit the back of the net the next time he steps up from 12 yards.

Speaking after the game, as quoted by BBC Sport, the defender said: “We all feel sorry for him, this is football and you have to accept it.

“He is experienced enough to take any penalty, the next one he will score for sure.”

One comment on “Ogbonna says what we’re all thinking on Noble

  1. It was a wrong decision Mr Moyes for anyone to come on and take a pen with their first touch of the ball, Declan should have taken it, and also I do not understand why Benrahma gets hooked and not Bowen or Fornals who can be a bit lightweight towards the end. That loss of energy in midfield allowed them to score the second one.
    Lastly does anyone know the Ukrainian for ‘get stuck in and run for the ball’ !!!
    The loss is down to Moyes not the players.
