“What he has shown is that at every level he has scored goals but this is a new level,” Clement told The Guardian.

“It’s a big jump. He’s gone from youth [football] to [under-] 23s to Championship and done very well along the way. But this is the big step, isn’t it? You’re talking about playing against some of the best players in the world.
