Indirect Speech: He exclaimed with joy that they had won the match.
Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the direct speech is in the present perfect tense, then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past perfect tense.
Present Perfect Tense (have won) > Past Perfect Tense (had won).
And if the sentence is exclamatory, we use the reporting verbs like exclaimed, admired, cried etc based on the sentence.
Indirect Speech: He exclaimed with joy and told me that they have won the match.
Indirect Speech: He told me with joy that they had won the match.
