Cape Town - Southampton
boss Mauricio Pellegrino praised the wonder goal scored by Sofiane
Boufal on Saturday which secured a 1-0 win over West Brom at St Mary's.
Boufal lit up an otherwise dull contest on 85 minutes when he went on
a marauding run from inside his own half and beat six players before
stroking the ball into the bottom-right corner of the net.
The Saints halted a three-match winless run to claim their third
victory of the new campaign which took them above the Baggies up to 10th
Pellegrino felt his side deserved to come away with all three points
and paid tribute to Boufal for making things happen following his
introduction off the bench nine minutes from time.
"I think it was a beautiful goal, one of the most beautiful goals of this season," the Argentine coach said.
"It changed the game because it was a difficult game, but the most important thing was we deserved the win.
"We were better than them in my opinion and we dominated the game. I am happy for Sofiane."
