"I was a bit tensed because this was my first time at this stage. However the first touches I had, made me settle into the game and I began expressing myself freely on the pitch.

"I am happy with my performance because I did not expect to score and provide an assist in my first match. It is unbelievable! I want to put in more effort in training and get more playing time in the upcoming matches."
