The tall striker could have added lustre to his Ajax 1 debut with a goal against the Groningen team. The Italian had two good chances to outwit goalkeeper Michael Verrips.

"Of course I should have scored, oh well.... It will be better next time. Fortunately, we got the three points. We can always use them. Hopefully we will keep working and keep winning."

The fact that he is the first Italian to get playing time in Ajax's flagship team makes his debut extra special, in his opinion. "I am grateful that the club has given me this opportunity. My teammates help me and I am happy with this experience."

After the game, his phone appeared to be full of messages from social media. "Yes, a lot of fans have sent me something on Instagram. I love to feel the warmth of the spectators."

It also speeds up the process of settling Lucca into the Netherlands. He quickly felt at ease in Amsterdam. "I like it a lot. It is a quiet city, with many bicycles."
