"I think I've matured with time. I have my family
to thank for that as they've always been very
close to me. If the team wins, I'm happy.
"It's your duty to score goals when you're a
striker. I wasn't worried because I knew that
my goal would come sooner or later against

and it wasn't easy to score."
