Eugení: "I'm not happy about the defeat, but pleased to have scored"

One of the players brought in to undertake preseason with the Valencia CF first team, Eugení came on as a substitute in the game against Crystal Palace and scored a terrific goal in the 3-1 defeat in England. The youngster spoke to VCF Radio after the match to give his thoughts on the encounter and his strike.

"I'm not happy about the defeat, but I am pleased to have scored. You have to look at the game in general; I'm happy with the goal. I don't think that we played badly, but we made two mistakes and then the penalty killed us. We both had chances, but they put theirs away and we didn't convert ours. Crystal Palace's play is different to ours. I won't say anything about the referee, but the pitch wasn't very favourable to our play. I think that the first half was good and we combined quite well. I think that we had good phases in the game and we have to use them to keep improving."
