Cédric Bakambu scored the goal to complete the comeback (2-1) against Las Palmas yesterday, subsequently sending the crowd crazy at El Madrigal stadium. The French-Congolese striker has been chosen as the Mahou Five Star Player for the match against the side from the Canary Islands. "You don't always get these chances. I saw the goalkeeper, I shot and I scored", he commented. "The important thing is that the team won", he asserted.
Villarreal fought until the final whistle and Soriano ended up finding Bakambu, whose finish made the El Madrigal stadium explode. "Yes, they are three very important points for us. I’m really happy", the number 17 expressed.
The African player also stressed the difficult of performing 100% after the UEFA Europa League match played midweek in Turkey . "It’s never easy to play after a Europa League match. Now we have to rest and give everything against Eibar", he concluded.
