Goal Overshadowed

West Ham defender Auckland-born Winston Reid has spoken of his sadness at the deadly earthquake that rocked Christchurch hours after the Hammers had booked their place in the last eight of the FA Cup with a 5-1 win over Burnley. Reid headed home his first goal for the club in a morale-boosting win for the Hammers, but delight turned to despair for Reid after news of the earthquake broke. “It was a fantastic night for me and for the team, but obviously a thing like this happening puts it all into perspective,” Reid told West Ham’s official website. “I heard about the earthquake and then saw the pictures of it all on the news. It is devastating and my heart goes out to everyone back home.”
