Eddie Nketiah admitted that he relishes European nights after netting in his fourth-straight Europa League start in tonight’s 3-0 win against Bodo/Glimt.
The striker followed up his winner against FC Zurich in our first group game by breaking the deadlock this evening with an instinctive finish to set us on our way to victory, and maintain our 100 per cent start to the competition.
And with four more continental clashes coming up over the next four weeks, Eddie is excited to keep taking opportunities to extend his impressive record.
Reflecting on the game, he said: “It's good to get some minutes and good to get on the scoresheet. It just kind of came quick, so I was just alert. I knew KT was kinda shooting so I was just alive on my feet and obviously adjusted well to finish.
“Obviously, if I start the last four games, I’ve got more of a chance of scoring so it’s been nice to test myself against different European teams, and I’ve done well so far so hopefully I can continue that. I’ve got much more to give.”
We face the same opposition in a week’s time over in Norway aiming to remain on top of Group A, and despite the comfortable-looking scoreline, Eddie feels that we’ll have to once again be at our best away from home to get another positive result this term.
“I thought they were a really good side,” he said. “They tried to play, they had a real strong way and kept playing even when they were down, so it was tough opposition. They made it really tough for us at times, but it was a good result for us.
“I think once again the atmosphere was amazing, and we’re really building that connection between us and the fans, so long it may it continue. Obviously, we can hopefully continue winning here.”
