He's rocketed up in my estimations after that. His first thought in THAT MOMENT, was of the team.

My word, that is effing superb.

Screw the congratulations and personal adulation; let's get the ball and go on and get the winner 🙌🏼

A part of me thinks Koeman knew Niasse wasn't good enough but decided to throw him under a bus yesterday in a no lose situation. If he bombs he doesn't need to say 'I told you so' as it'll be out there for everyone to see and if he takes his chance he gets credit for bringing him back into the fold.

He wasn't fit enough to start a game at this level and shouldn't have really. He'd have been a very useful sub if we were chasing the game in the 2nd half and needed an extra body in the box, which we were, but he was out on his feet ready to come off instead of being fresh ready to come on.

Yep, I said exactly this in the match thread
