Swansea City midfielder Nathan Dyer told talkSPORT of his devastation after being snubbed for what would have been a hat-trick winning goal from the penalty spot in the Capital One Cup final.
Jonathan de Guzman won the penalty midway through the Jacks’ 5-0 win over Bradford but the Dutchman refused to allow Dyer to take the spot kick and score his third of the night, something which the winger admitted was a tough pill to swallow.
"It was a bit hard for me to take,” Dyer told talkSPORT.
“To get a hat-trick at Wembley in my first cup final for Swansea City, you can’t write that and I feel like it did get taken away from me a little bit.
“But we’re teammates at the end of the game and you have to move on.
“I haven’t scored a hat-trick in my career, so I was devastated not to have got it.
“It was hard to take and hard to swallow but we won, we won the cup and made history and that’s the main thing.
“I scored two goals as well and got the man-of-the-match, so I can’t really ask for more.”
