Chesterfield striker Akwasi Asante is pleased after scoring the consolation for his side in their 5-1 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup on Saturday.
The striker who was returning from injury after eight months smashed home his side’s goal in the 80th minute after the Blues had taken a 5-0 lead.
Asante mentioned that it is one of his proudest moments and he will forever savor the goal.
“It is an unbelievable feeling,” he told the DT.
“It is crazy. I can’t believe I have played at Stamford Bridge and scored.”
He laughed: “I should be playing in the Premier League – I have scored at Stamford Bridge!
The talented attacker further indicated that it was a big relieve for him to score following a difficult campaign and it will urge him on.
“When I got injured I was playing some of my best football and then to get the injury was heartbreaking.”
“It softens the blow a little bit from a personal point of view, it is a special moment.”
“When it dropped I just thought ‘I have actually scored here’. I did not know whether to smash it in or do something silly because it is Chelsea away but I just thought ‘don’t do anything stupid’ and I put it in the net.”
“Adrenaline takes over at that time. It is surreal. I just gave a little wave to my mates in the corner and they were buzzing to see me score.” He added.
Asante became the first non-league player to score a goal at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in a competitive game.
