Gary Anderson back to prove people wrong “If you say I can’t do it, I’m going to try my damndest to have a good at you and say Oh yes I can.”
Gary Anderson and Peter Wright, who won the World Cup of Darts in 2019, are back to represent Scotland. Despite outside reservations, both players are absolutely confident in winning another World Cup crown
Wright and Anderson spoke to us in Frankfurt after defeating a stiff challenge from the Philippines 8-5.
The match swung the way of Scotland with a sensational 141 finish from Anderson.
“Everytime they were doing the right thing. Last six darts they were brilliant,” Anderson said when asked about that moment
This time last year Anderson looked to be heading out of the sport, as the Scotmans slid down the rankings and had a major lack of motivation to play.
Since the turn of the year, Anderson has been reborn, winning titles, and his game looks to be back where it was between 15/18.
“What I’ve got to do to shut you lot up! I love it, it gives me the fight you know. If you say I can’t do it, I’m going to try my damndest to have a good at you and say Oh yes I can.”
The Philippines pushed Scotland the whole way in the last 16 clash in Frankfurt.
“They didn’t give the monkeys about us,” says Wright, full of praise for Lourence Ilagan and Christian Perez. “If everyone was like them, the world would be a better place,” Anderson adds. “We got away with that one.”
“It’s obviously nice to have Gary back. Especially the way he’s playing at the moment. He carried me all the way through the match.”
“It’s been a while since I’ve been in front of the camera’s so a bit nervous,” continues Anderson. “It’s a hard game, pairs. They just proved it tonight.”
