Spurs Secure 2-0 Victory Against United: Vicario’s Insights on Crucial Saves
- Updated: August 22, 2023
Precision and preparation came into play as Guglielmo Vicario showcased his skills against Manchester United on Saturday’s match.
The goalkeeper’s impeccable performance included crucial saves at critical junctures, contributing to our well-deserved victory with goals from Pape Sarr and an own goal by Lisandro Martinez in the second half.
In the initial stages, ‘Vic’ extended himself to block Marcus Rashford’s attempt at the near post when the score remained tied. Following Pape’s goal, Vicario exhibited a remarkable reflex save to deflect Casemiro’s point-blank header over the bar.
Post-match, Guglielmo delved into the details of these pivotal saves, particularly his stop against Casemiro.
“With Rashford, I opted to cover as much space as possible instead of rushing out. It was a crucial save in the first half. As for Casemiro’s header, it was dangerously close to the goal. I believe I made a significant save at a decisive moment in the game. We were leading 1-0 and in an offensive mode. Had they equalized to 1-1, it could have changed the game’s dynamics.”
“Our training heavily emphasizes such scenarios. Reacting swiftly to headers is our objective. A lot of groundwork is done behind the scenes, and I’m dedicated to continual improvement. Assisting my teammates is paramount for me. Our triumph is a collective achievement and well-deserved.”
Vic echoed the sentiments shared within the team, underscoring the significance of unity over individual accomplishments. “While I’m pleased with my performance, the priority lies in aiding my teammates. Triumph is a collaborative effort, and when we succeed, we triumph collectively.”
“The ultimate joy from this match is the shared victory. We faced challenges and demonstrated strong attacking football. We’re elated and must savor this moment. However, our focus must now shift to the upcoming match. We remain committed to consistent effort and growth. We’re in good form both mentally and physically, yet the league is demanding. Staying concentrated and striving for enhancement remains our priority.”
