thumbnail Hello,

The 19-year-old said he was delighted in scoring on his debut but conceded he could have added to his tally on a night where the Nerrazzurri gained a point against Rubin Kazan

Marko Livaja has spoken of his delight about getting off the mark on his full Inter Milan debut against Rubin Kazan in their first Europa League Group H game but admits it could have been better.

The Croatia Under-19 international got the Nerrazzurri on level terms just before the stroke of half-time after Rubin went 1-0 up from the penalty spot.

But in the second half Inter fell behind again and had Japan international Yuto Nagatomo to thank for salvaging a draw at San Siro, Livaja says he could have been more prolific in front of goal.

Speaking shortly after the full-time whistle the former Hadjuk Split youth player told the club's official TV station: "I scored the first then I messed up the second... we didn't win but it was an enjoyable match.”

Livaja revealed it was exciting for him to open his account for the Serie A giants but at the same time remained level-headed about the moment.

He added: “Yes, it was an emotional occasion for me. I didn't go crazy after scoring. My aim is always to score goals.”

Although slightly disappointed with a home draw his focus has been immediately switched to this weekend’s Serie A clash with Siena. “Now we have to think about Siena, it's an important game,” he said.
