Wesley Hoedt reacts to Southampton’s FA Cup win on Twitter



Wesley Hoedt took to social networking site Twitter to express his reaction after Southampton’s FA Cup win over Wigan on Sunday.

The Saints earned a 2-0 win against Wigan at the DW Stadium to cement a place in the semi finals of the FA Cup where they will face Chelsea.

Hoedt played the entire 90 minutes and his performance was appreciated by the Saints fans. He tweeted after the match:

It was also Southampton’s first victory under Mark Hughes who replaced Mauricio Pellegrino last week.

Two second half goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Cedric Soares earned the victory for Southampton.

Wigan did well to keep the scoreline 0-0 at half time. In the second half, Emile Hojbjerg fired in after Christian Walton had saved his header.

Walton also caught the attention when he made a stunning save to deny Manolo Gabbiadini from a penalty spot after Dan Burn had brought down the striker.

However, a late goal deep in the extra time from Soares ended all hopes for Wigan.

Southampton should turn their attention now to the Premier League where a survival battle is at stake. The Saints find themselves 18th in the Premier League table with only eight games left to play.
