Jason Cummings Gives One Of The Great Post-Match Interviews After Liverpool Heroics

What a comeback! It looked as though Liverpool were cruising to victory in their FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury, only for the home side to overturn a 2-0 deficit to force a replay.

They have Jason Cummings to thank. The Scottish striker would start the game on the bench, but his introduction in the second half was the catalyst need to get back in the game.

He netted a brace, with the first coming from the penalty spot.

A few moments later, he capitalised on a mistake from Dejan Lovren to steer the ball beyond Adrian.

The final whistle was met with scenes of elation from the home crowd who rushed onto the pitch. The players enjoyed themselves as well.

Speaking to the BBC after the game, Cummings was in top form. He gave a cracking post-match interview, one not short on one-liners. When asked if things could have gone any better for him and was told that Ian Wright was clamouring for him to be brought on, he responded:

Well, I could've got the hat-trick! Two goals, it was a dream come true against the best team in the world. I know it's not their first team, but it's still good for us.

We'll take the replay, go to Anfield. It's what the FA Cup is all about...

Ian Wright, he knows his stuff! I called every week on I'm A Celeb to get him in the final.

I'm delighted personally. For the boys, I'm delighted as well because we deserve it, we worked hard for it.

It was expected (not to start), my fitness isn't fully there. I was expecting to come off the bench, I was just delighted to get on and make an impact.

Cummings was joined in the tunnel by man-of-the-match Josh Laurent, the player who was taken down for the penalty.

Laurent allowed Cummings to take the spot kick, something the striker was delighted to do. He also wasn't able to tell the post-match interviewer what inspirational message was delivered in the dressing room at halftime, because he wasn't even in the room:

I wasn't there. I was outside warming up, so ask him!

He gave me the penalty. He wanted to take it, but I'm glad he gave me it.

The replay will be really good. It'll good for the fans, good for the chairman to make him a few quid!

We're all delighted, we can't wait to get there.
