(on scoring his first goal at home) “I was speechless, I didn’t know what to do, where to go, but you know, I went to my teammates. They always help me out, on and off the field.”

(on how the goal developed) “(FW) Mauro (Manotas) really helped me, he overlapped me and took the defender away and I had a clear shot, so I took it.”

(on if he was looking for a shot) “I was just letting the play progress, if there was an opportunity to shoot, I would shoot it. If there was an opportunity to give it to (FW) Mauro (Manotas), I was going to give it to Mauro. It worked out in the end and we scored.”
