Villarreal Striker Nilmar Eager For Official Debut

Nilmar joined Villarreal from Internacional for a club record fee of €11 million last month and scored in his debut for the club in the 4-1 win over Juventus.

Nilmar has now declared that he is looking forward to his first official match for the club, which could be against NAC Breda in the Europa League on Thursday.

"I am really eager to have my debut in an official competition," Nilmar is quoted by GLOBOESPORTE as saying. "I am really integrated in the group and I hope I will help the team.

"We have a lot of quality and I guarantee we will have a great match."

Nilmar praised his attacking club colleagues, with whom he "gets along really well on the field".

"The game here is much more compact and fast, which is very good for me," he added.

When asked about Giuseppe Rossi and Santi Cazorla, Nilmar stated, "I really like playing with them because they are always looking for a goal."
