Theo Walcott was happy to score again for Southampton but the lack of fans

Published on


Theo Walcott expressed happiness after scoring his first Southampton goal in 15 years.

The Striker shook the net in a 1-1 draw at the Wolves on Monday. The Saints extended their Premier League run to seven games.

It was the club’s first goal since January 2006 after borrowing from Everton last month.

Pedro Neto canceled out Walcott’s opener after 5,434 days as Southampton remain fifth.

“It was so beautiful. It’s a shame we don’t have fans here, but we hope to be there soon, ”Walcott said.

“I was very happy to achieve that goal. My first game was against wolves, so it’s fun to see how things happen in life.

“It seems like a real win – it’s a very difficult place to come and get results, and a lot of teams don’t get results here.

“We showed that we can continue to the end and work hard and that everyone will be happy with it.”

Walcott should have taken a 2-0 lead, but missed a chance to kill the game in front of Neto’s equalizer after a shot had been drawn wide.

“I need to score – I know,” the 31-year-old told the club’s official site. “I am my best reviewer and I know it’s not enough to not score.

“Trust me, I will train next week and I will not allow that to happen again.”

Neto scored 15 minutes after Raul hit Jimenez’s strike post, which was denied by Alex McCarthy when the Wolves finished ninth.

But the substitute admitted he could not celebrate because he feared VAR would erase his goal.

He told Wolves’ official website: “I did not celebrate with VAR last year, which was very bad for me. I didn’t celebrate because I didn’t know what the decision was.

“I was very happy with the goal, but not happy with the result.

“Whether I start on the bench or start at 11, I have to do my best to help the team. This is not disappointing (not to start with). We were all ready to start, but I came off the bench and tried my best to help the team, and I did too.

“All three points would have been good for us, but unfortunately we didn’t get them. We are sad about the result, but we need to focus on the next one. ”
