Football | Amond strikes again as Newport produce another upset

👏 | Straight from the training ground! — The Emirates FA Cup (@EmiratesFACup) February 5, 2019 "It was an unbelievable feeling," he told RTÉ Sport after scoring his team's second goal. "It was well-worked training ground routine. Sometimes in the big games you’re best opportunity will be from a set-piece so we worked really hard on them. The minute it left my foot I knew it was going into the top corner. "For that split-second before everyone else realises it you’re know what is happening and where it is going to go and it’s just a great feeling." Newport will now face Manchester City in the fifth round, and Amond is relishing the test. "We’ll do everything we can," he continued. "It’s going to be a tough game again but this time we are playing one of the best sides in world club football. There will be a few sleepless nights ahead of the game but we have nothing to lose. "Nobody expects us to win the game or get anything from it. The most important thing is for the club that financially the future is secured for the next few years as this run in the FA Cup brings in an amount of money. For the players we can really enjoy the build-up and all the pressure is off us. "Hopefully we can put in a performance like the last couple of rounds and you never know what can happen."
