Liverpool defender Dan Agger feels Andy Carroll answered his critics with his Wembley winner on Saturday.
â€œItâ€™s a good feeling and to reach a final is always a big achievement,â€ Agger said. â€œI think we did well to beat them. At half-time the manager said â€˜just carry onâ€™.
â€œHe told us to keep producing chances and try to get a goal or two. We went out there and we did it. It doesnâ€™t matter who scores but weâ€™re all delighted for Andy. It was a great cross from Bellamy and we know Andy is a big guy who is good in the air. He was in the right place to put it away.
â€œCriticism is normal in football. You have to produce your best every time otherwise you will get criticism.
â€œAndy showed today that heâ€™s got great potential.
â€œTo score a winner in such a big game so late on was a great feeling for him.
â€œNow thereâ€™s a big desire in the squad to go on and win the FA Cup. The final is going to be special.â€
