My goal against Liverpool was my 'proudest' moment - 17 years old Villa youngster, Barry says

Share This
Aston Villa’s Louie Barry has called his FA Cup strike against Liverpool his proudest ever moment.
The 17-year-old netted an equalising goal just before half-time for a makeshift Villa side in their FA Cup third-round tie with the Reds at Villa Park.

But Jurgen Klopp side came back too strong for the young Villans in second half, as Wijnaldum, Mane and Mohamed Salah got the goals to make it 4-1 as Liverpool advance to the next round.

“I knew that I had it, as soon as I saw it,” Barry told BT Sport of his goal. “To put the ball in the back of the net, it is the proudest I’ve ever been. Family were probably screaming at the TV when it hit the back of the net.

“It all happened so quickly. I was just happy to score – hopefully I score many more … I was working very hard, and so was everyone else. When I celebrated everything came out of me. For the celebration it was relief. It was good.

“I’ve never been so proud of a team – from start to finish we gave our all. When I scored, I thought we might have a chance. Obviously that didn’t turn out to be but we were a credit to ourselves and a credit to the club.”

Meanwhile, he revealed that he had to run down the tunnel to get his shirt back after swapping with Liverpool defender Fabinho.

“I remembered it was my debut shirt. I got his shirt as well, so credit to Fabinho. I got both of them,” he laughed.
