"Obviously I put the ball in the back of the net and it's the proudest I've ever been of myself.
"My family were probably screaming at the TV when it hit the back of the net and, yeah, I've never been so proud. It happened all so quickly. I was just happy to score and, yeah, hopefully many more.
"We were working really hard before and so was everyone else. When I celebrated, everything just came out of me. [It was] just like relief, kind of, so, yeah, it was good."

It's a winning mentality you can't be taught and Barry admitted he was eager for his side to go on and win the game.
"I've never been so proud of a team before. From start to finish we gave our all.
"When I scored I thought we might even have a chance here, which it didn't turn out to be but, [we were a] credit to ourselves, and a credit to the club.
"I was cramping up a bit towards the end but I feel like that's just what you've got to get used to. With age comes more physicality, and mentality as well. It's just a really good experience for all of us."
Barry joined Villa last year after a stint in Barcelona's famous La Masia academy.
The teenager even shared training pitches with world superstars such as Lionel Messi.
