Evan Ferguson Displayed Wisdom Beyond His Years In Interview After Leicester Stunner

This is Evan Ferguson's world, we're all just living in it.

The Irish teenager provided yet another reminder of why he is such an exciting prospect this afternoon, scoring a brilliant late header to help Brighton secure a draw away at Leicester City in the Premier League.

It continues what has been a remarkable run of form from the 18-year old. He has now scored three goals and registered two assists in his last four league appearances, no small feat for a player who is playing consistent minutes in the division for the first time in his career.

Ireland fans are rightly excited by his form, salivating at the prospect of what could be to come from him in the years ahead. They're not the only ones, with the Soccer Saturday panel singing his praises after the goal.

If the last few weeks are anything to go by, he is set to have a massive career.

Evan Ferguson gives impressive interview after Leicester goal

For one so young, there is no doubt that Evan Ferguson shows a maturity beyond his years.


Despite having only turned 18-years old in October, he speaks in a manner that you would not expect from someone his age.

That was evidenced by his interview with BBC Sport Sussex after this game.

That's what I was told to do, come onto the pitch to make an impact and try to do my best. I think every striker wants to score goals, so that's what I came on and tried to do...

I think that's the belief and the confidence that we have at the minute, it comes right through the whole squad. Everyone knows that the game is never over and we always have a chance, today we got the point.

I think so (we were frustrated to let the early lead slip). You can always take the negatives away from it, but the positive is coming away from home and them sitting in deep. That gives us confidence in the way we play. At the end of the day it's a good point to get.

The work we do in training is to try and play against that (low black), the different ways to get through. You seen today that at the end of the day we found a way...

We need to keep going, go as far as we can in the cup and finish as high as we can in the league. That's all you can do.

That's what the gaffer wants, so that's what we're going to try to do.

He was equally measured in his television interview.



I'm just trying my best when I get my chance, when I get the shout from the gaffer.

I'm just trying to do my job and it seems to be going in at the minute.

An attitude that should bring him right to the top.

We can try to keep a level head, but it's hard not to get very excited by what Evan Ferguson is doing at the moment.
