    Reported Speech

    Paul said, "I went to church yesterday."
    Paul said that he had gone to church the previous day/the day before.

    In reported speech, which phrase should be used? My friend said that I have to use the 'the previous day', but I believe we can use either one. Am I correct?

    Thanks.
