Ghanaian striker Brandon Thomas-Asante is happy after netting a 98th minute equalizer against Burnley in the English Championship on Friday night.
Asante who was signed by the “Baggies” just 48 hours before the game scored on his debut as West Brom snatched a point in the nerve wrecking encounter.
“I can’t say that I’ve ever had a feeling like that in football,” Asante stated after the game
“Even just coming out for the warm-up was an amazing feeling.
“Under the lights, amazing fans. That attendance – we were saying the other day that I’ve played in front of a few crowds but nothing like today.
“It was incredible. The atmosphere, the way the game went. I couldn’t have asked for more.
“When the 90th minute came up, I thought ‘oh my days, a goal now would be unreal’. You can’t always bank that the chance is going to come, but it did today and I’m so thankful.
“It was one of those where I did contemplate whether I was going to strike it or not. I was off balance and I saw someone was near me, and thought maybe I should try and lay it off to them.
“But then I thought you know what – go for it and see what happens. Sometimes as a striker you do those things and at times like now they come off. There might be times where it doesn’t, but I’m always going to beat the door down and do my best.
Asante, 23, was born in England to a Ghanaian father and a Jamaican mother and he is eligible to play for all three countries.
