The young attacker earned 15 minutes on the pitch and expressed his pride and gratitude for the achievement post-match to Palace TV:
“It was a proud moment for me and my family. It was a great opportunity for me; I thank the coaches for helping me to get to this point and I thank the gaffer for trusting me and giving me [the] opportunity to play. Hopefully more to come.
“I felt it went quite well. I just tried to stay calm, keep the ball and play simple.”
