Sébastien Haller put in a great performance against Sporting CP on Wednesday with four goals. Shortly after the Champions League match, the striker could barely contain himself.
''This was a dream debut'', Haller remarked about his perfect first game in the UEFA Champions League. “But we also played well as a team. We did well both tactically and mentally. I'm happy."
"Of course I never expected such a debut," continued the striker, who was also named Man of the Match. Haller also took the match ball home after his four goals. “You try to focus. That went well. I scored after a minute of playing. Of course, that also gave a boost. You know that your debut is already good. Everything that follows is actually a bonus. After that first goal, I was able to focus even more on the team.”
"I can barely believe it. It went by so fast," Haller concluded. ''I don't think anyone expected a 1-5 win. We can enjoy this.”
