Nathan Delfouneso capped his England U21 debut with the consolation goal in the 2-1 loss to Greece.
Speaking on the Official Site today Delboy said he was hungry for more action both in our first team and at International level after getting a taste of the next step up.
He also said nerves weren't a problem when Stuart Pearce said he was going on, he just wishes it could've been a winning debut.
'It was a big positive for me. It was a proud moment for me and my family. Hopefully I made the club proud.'
Given the bits I saw of the match and the performance of his colleagues, Villa are potentially the only club proud today. So many 'next big thing' names that pundits have been raving about, and England seemed unable to control the ball or pass it 5 yards accurately for the most part.
Bad day at the office, but even if that's the case then Delboy has even more to be proud of as it's possible he's the only one who managed to focus well enough to do his job last night.
'That's what I'm there for, to pop up in the right places. I am a striker and that is what I am meant to do.'
Makes it sound so simple doesn't it, but he was also involved in the build up to the goal and as we've seen when he's in the claret and blue there is a lot more to his game than simply goal hanging and waiting to tap them in.
He hasn't quite got the chances I'd hoped he would this season, but next year maybe we can live in hope that all the chats of 'which' strikers won't score today will be long gone.
