Nigeria youngster Orji Okonkwo has said he will forever remember when he made a winning debut for Serie A side Bologna.

Bolona won 3-1 at home against Palermo Sunday with Nigeria U20 star Okonkwo an 89th minute replacement for Rizzo Lucas.

“I started my campaign in the Serie A on a winning note, this is a plus for me,” said the 18-year-old forward, who won the FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile last year.

“This is one thing I will forever remember this day, the first day I played my professional match for a league club in Europe.

“How do I thank the coach for believing in me and promoting me to the senior team?

“I am indebted to the coach and my agent Kingston Olaniyan for the right counsel and constant reminder of how you can achieve greater height as a profession footballer.

“It was a very sweet victory.”
