Huddersfield Town win EFL Championship in penalties, move up to Premier League

Vera Richards | 31 May, 2017, 06:48

Aaron Mooy's Premier League dream has come true with Huddersfield Town edging Reading FC on penalties in a dramatic Championship play-off final at Wembley to secure promotion.

"A lot of the pundits wrote us off before the season", said the 45-year-old German-born former United States global.

Liam Moore and Jordan Obita, two of Reading's best performers this season, missed their penalties before Huddersfield's Christopher Schindler slotted in the winning spot-kick.

But the Dutchman has said he is happy to stay and co-chairman Madejski feels it would take something extra special to tempt him away.

"I think there are definitely players in the A-League who have quality", Mooy said after his side's play-off victory.

And, in the Wembley dressing room, Huddersfield sang about Ian Holloway as well.

"To be honest, I don't believe that he will move now because of such an achievement with this club and get the chance to play Premier League next season with this club", he said.

David Wagner will be on the phone to Jurgen Klopp once the enormity of Huddersfield's rise to the Premier League sinks in.

Fake media prevent Americans from hearing real story
On that topic, Trump tweeted Sunday night: "I suggest that we add more dollars to Healthcare and make it the best anywhere". The newspaper cited anonymous US officials who were briefed on intelligence reports on intercepted Russian communications.

Huddersfield Town's promotion could be worth up to $300 million to the club and ends a 45-year absence from England's top division.

But now that the dust has settled and Huddersfield have been confirmed as the final addition to the 2017/18 Premier League season, we've been reminded of the highlight of Monday's game.

"I think in the game we did really well for 120 minutes and penalties".

Wagner took over in November 2015 as the first manager of the club to be born outside the British Isles. After what they did in the semi-final, I thought the circumstances wouldn't be a problem. "We give a lot of hope to smaller clubs", Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle said.

It would take a very fearless man to put money on Huddersfield Town winning the Premier League, but if you are that courageous man, they have been given odds of 2000/1.

So, now its time to rest and get ready for the 2017-2018 season, time to improve, reflect and get where we want to be.

"I'm sure we will be even stronger next year".
