Milan starlet Alberto Paloschi was almost lost for words as he scored with his very first touch in Serie A.
The 18-year-old came off the bench to grab the winner for Milan against Siena on Sunday.
And afterwards, Paloschi could not believe how things had gone on his league debut as he scored just seconds after coming on.
"I had a bit of luck, too. I really didn't expect to score on my debut and I still feel goosebumps now," he said.
Paloschi has played for Milan in the Coppa Italia and has bagged a couple of goals but he admits it was a different prospect playing a league game for the Rossoneri.
"I have had the opportunity to play at San Siro in the Coppa Italia, but there were only 5,000 spectators," he said.
"Today the stadium was packed and it really is another atmosphere entirely. I am happy to have scored today and hope to net many more.
"I dedicate this goal to my family. Up until now they have made many sacrifices to take me from my hometown of Bergamo to Milan and I owe it all to them."
Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti revealed that despite his efforts, Paloschi would be returning to the youth set-up.
"Paloschi will remain with us and train for few days, but unless we have an emergency like we had, then he will go back with our youth side," he said.
