Alexis Mac Allister scored twice and hit the post with this free kick.

Alexis Mac Allister would love to add an FA Cup winners' medal alongside his World Cup medal.

The Albion midfielder came off the bench to score twice in an emphatic 5-1 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday, and afterwards said, "It would be nice, we know it is hard, but we will try [to win the cup].

"At the moment I am living the dream. Credit to the team on Saturday, we played an amazing game and deserved the win.

Alexis scored an incredible first goal, with a skillful backheel from Pervis Estupinan's low drive - before adding a second after a neat cut-back from Pascal Gross. 

He added, "Pervis had a shot. I don't think he wanted to pass to me! But when I saw the ball coming, I just tried to score. It was a nice goal. Confidence is everything in a football player, and my confidence is very high.”

Mac Allister: We deserved the win

Mac Allister paid tribute to the role the club has played in his progression, and says the desire to share his success with his Albion colleagues meant he decided to come back from Argentina early.

"I wanted to come back. The club gave me until January 5 but I decided to come back early because I wanted to train, I wanted to play, and I wanted to share my medal with my teammates and with everyone at the club.

"After coming home from the World Cup I received an amazing reception. I am so happy to be here and am very happy at this club and in this city. I just want to keep working hard and doing my best on the pitch.

"They know they have played a huge role in my journey to the World Cup. It is nice I can share it with my teammates at the club and they deserve this as well."
