Evann Guessand (Nantes) on his winning goal against Olympiakos: “It was a huge joy”

Nantes offered itself a victory on the wire Thursday against Olympiakos (2-1), in a stadium in turmoil, during the first day of the Europa League, after two decades of absence on the European scene. While the two formations seemed to be heading towards a parity score, Evann Guessand took charge in the last seconds of capsizing the stadium, whose spans shook. He returned to this memorable evening on our channel, in “L’Équipe de Greg”.

Its goal

“I’m starting to get to know Ludo Blas and his style of play well. I know that when he gets on his strong foot, it’s to cross. So I prepare for it and when the ball arrives, I try to make the best possible gesture to put it in the background, especially since I am denied a goal a few minutes before. When I saw that the ball had gone in and the goal was awarded, it was a huge joy… We must not hide it, the contribution of the public played a big role. I knew he was going to push us to the end. »

The Europa League

“Like all the teams in Group G (Olympiakos, Freiburg and Qarabag), we aim to take the maximum number of points and get out of the pool. Playing major competitions makes us play every three days, it’s tiring but that’s what we like. It makes us happy to experience these moments of joy during major events and we will be happy to go to Qarabag next week. »

The next game against Lorient

“It was yesterday evening, so we’re still a bit in it, but we have to move on quickly because there’s the match against Lorient which awaits us on Sunday. It’s very important for us to come back with a good result. It’s important for us to have a good season and that also involves the Championship. »

“Can you imagine, I couldn’t get the newspaper. The Nantes supporters took them all. We will try to find a solution, to go around the city to find a copy. I don’t know what happened, but in the morning they all went to the tobacconist and there is nothing left. »
