Oriol Romeu is hoping he can add more goals to his game after netting his first ever Premier League strike in yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.
Romeu came off the bench in the second half to force home a James Ward-Prowse corner and cancel out Joleon Lescott’s 44th-minute opener.
The effort was only the third club goal of the 24-year-old’s career and also marked his first since signing from Chelsea in the summer.
Naturally, Romeu felt it was a big moment for him.
"I think when someone scores it's always a very, very good moment, even for me that I'm not used to it,” he told youtube.com/southamptonfc.
“I'm very happy for that, and hopefully I can get some more in the future. The main thing is to help the team to be up there and winning some games.”
Romeu scored after holding off the attention of Carlos Sánchez to prod home Ward-Prowse’s delivery in the 73rd minute at St Mary’s.
"I lost the position in the beginning, I tried to come back, and I could move the opponent away to put my foot there,” he said.
“It was a bit lucky, but the main thing is we could get the goal.”
