After netting his first goal for West Browich Albion, Egyptian defender Ahmed Hegazi says he feels happy as they also won the match.
The Pharaohs international was on his debut in the English Premier League when they beat AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.
Hegazi is on loan from Egypt's Al Ahly and netted his first goal in England in the 31st minute, deftly heading Chris Brunt's cross from the right to beat Bournemouth's goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic.
Hegazy said the clean sheet is what makes him happy as a defender and that a bright start was important for his team.
“It is a very good win and a fantastic feeling," the 26-year-old player said on the club's official website.
“The clean sheet is the first thing you think about as a defender. It's very important to the team.
"To start well was very important for us. ... The first game is always very important for the team and for the start of the season.
"We can take enormous confidence from this."
In their next match, the Baggies will visit Burnley on Saturday at Turf Moor as they will want to bag their second win.
