Focus on... Macheda

suspended. I played a game for the Reserves and scored three goals and, that Sunday, I was on the bench. I didn't think I'd go on the pitch that day because I thought I was just making up the numbers with all the strikers missing. Then he called me and I couldn't believe it. I was on the pitch and it happened as it happened!

Career ambitions..
Of course, I want to become a top footballer. That's my dream and nobody can stop me. I want to achieve lots of stuff in football even if I know it won't be easy.

What do you love about football?
I think the supporters. The atmosphere in the stadium in the big games, stuff like this. I love training as well with your team-mates. We're always laughing in the changing room and it's great.
