17 year-old Southampton striker Michael Obafemi admits he was "overwhelmed" by making his PL debut unexpectedly on Sunday but he is looking to build on his decent 10 minutes display.
"Oba" had actually been preparing to play for the Saints' Under-18 side on Saturday when he was called up to the senior squad's training with Shane Long out due to illness. Having scarcely lined out for the Under 23 team, it was a surprise to make his PL bow against last season's runners-up. The Republic of Ireland Under-19 International showed good movement and got himself in a golden position to finish off a low cross from Dusan Tadic however he wasn't quite able to make a proper contact with the ball. "I don’t really know what happened to be fair, I just got caught in the moment and didn’t take the chance." He added: "Hopefully I’m able to start in the Premier League but now I’ve got to move on and use this as a starting point." Mon, Jan 22, 2018 09:46:00 AM
