Southampton defender Cuco Martina has revealed his shock at the stunning opener he scored against Arsenal.
Martina, 26, made his first EPL appearance after joining Southampton from Twente in the close season and opened the scoring with a beautiful goal.
The defender was surprised at scoring and talked about his stunner.
“I don’t have words – it was an unbelievable feeling,” he said to Southampton’s YouTube channel.
“I saw the ball go in and I thought ‘oh my God’. It was a great feeling, for sure.
“I shoot and after the goal, everything was slow motion for me. I was so happy, so happy. I score I think three goals in my whole life and that is the nicest one.
“I am very happy to have scored and I am very happy that the coach gave me a chance. I need to improve to keep playing there.”
Having tasted victory for the first time in six Premier League matches, Southampton travel to play West Ham at Upton Park on Monday.
