De Vries: 'I Feel Guilty About Saturday's Goal'

De Vries: 'I Feel Guilty About Saturday's Goal'

Goalkeeper Dorus De Vries says he feels guilty about conceding a goal against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Swansea City took the lead early on in the second half at the Riverside Stadium on the weekend but Flood equalises with a lucky cross from the touchline which flew over the Dutchman's head and into the net.

A fluke, but De Vries believes he was at fault:

"Of course I feel guilty, the guys all said it wasn`t my fault and there was nothing I could do about it, but you always have your own ideas about how you could have stopped it.

"As a keeper, after doing well for so many games, you always know you will make a mistake at some point. But, if this is the biggest mistake I make this season, it`s fine by me.

"You don`t want to concede like that, but it happens sometimes.

"You just have to learn from it and, having never conceded like that before, I will take something from this experience and make sure it doesn`t happen again.

"It was unbelievable. I watched it back and it`s hard to take because I took up the right position to take the cross.

"But then the movement of the ball is completely different and it sneaks just under the crossbar.

"It`s tough because, as a goalkeeper, you never want to get beaten by those.

"It comes out of nowhere and, when you concede like that, it`s a blow for the team and a bitter pill to take."


Despite conceding the goal, De Vries was named in the team of the week along with team-mates Garry Monk and Gorka Pintado. That should make him feel better!

haven't seen the goal yet but if it was a mistake that's probably the first one he's made this season, he's been great
