Rodriguez Delighted With Brace

Rodriguez Delighted With Brace

Striker Jay Rodriguez has said he was delighted to take his tally for the season up to 17 strikes across all competitions with a brace against Newcastle.

Following the game and his two goals it means that he has now scored 15 Premiership goals this campaign, and he is now the second highest scoring Englishman behind Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge.

Speaking to saintsfc another joy for Rodriguez was in seeing his fellow England hopefuls get on the score sheet as well, although he's leaving the England talk for others, he's remaining focused on Southampton.

'It's unbelievable for the three of us. We work well together and we work hard for each other. It's an honest relationship and I've learned so much from Adam and Rickie - they're both great players and it's a pleasure to play alongside them.'

JayRod goes on to say that for all three of them it's just about continuing to work hard in training and on the pitch, and then bringing that through to the games themselves, and then what will be will be in terms of England. Everybody else can speculate about Roy Hodgson's choices, but he knows it's only through continuing to perform for us will he get the nod, so that has to be his focus.

'That's all we're concentrating on at the moment. We're working hard for each other, and I think you can see that it's paying off with the results we're getting and the fact that we're complimenting each other's games.'

As for the Newcastle game itself, Jay goes on to say that everyone is rightly pleased with the overall performance and again the gameplan from the gaffer was spot on, and the players stuck to it, but importantly this time as well as wasting a host of chances on the day, we also admirably took the others we created to take the win in a good fashion, but he does admit there is a tinge of disappointment that the scoreline wasn't more comprehensive because he knows we certainly had the chances in the game, and he knows he had the chances as well to have scored more.

With that said he gives their keeper huge credit for his performance and the saves he pulled off, saying he was brilliant all game long for Newcastle.
