''You dream of this as a little boy and when that dream comes true, it’s a very good feeling." Regeer said, expressing the euphoric feeling which was likely shared by his fellow debutants. "This is something you've been working towards for nine years. It's great that that dream comes true today," added Van Axel Dongen, shortly after his debut against BVV Barendrecht.
Hlynsson also expressed his joy about his first official game, in his own succinct way, ''I am happy.'' The Icelander also scored a penalty. "It was a good one. In the top corner. This was a day of my dreams."
