We started very well and that's what we wanted. We scored after two or three minutes and that made things easier for us. For the first goal, we knew how they set up at corners and we worked on that in training. [For the free-kick], I went for the near corner because I knew the goalkeeper could hardly see there because of the wall and he was unable to stop it. I'm very happy to be playing in this competition but I don't want to stop here – I will work hard and try to score more goals.
