Gomes: I can’t describe how it felt to score
Angel Gomes admitted his emotions were indescribable after he scored his first senior goal for Manchester United.
United had led at half-time thanks to Anthony Martial’s 21st-minute strike, which was cancelled out by Lucas Moura in the second period.
“I can’t describe how it felt,”Angel told MUTV after the match.
“As soon as it went in I just wanted to celebrate with the fans - that’s why I slipped!
“This is my second tour now, but it’s my first goal. When I got the chance to come on I wanted to stamp my authority and show what I can do,”he added.
He was relieved to have followed in the footsteps of James Garner and Mason Greenwood, after his youthful colleagues netted their maiden first-team goals against Perth Glory and Leeds United.
“I got a bit of stick off the players because a few different Academy players had scored, so I had to make sure I scored too,”said Gomes.
“It shows what the club are trying to do by bringing the youth products through and our stats are amazing [in pre-season].”

As the Reds prepared to head back to Manchester, Gomes reflected on the schedule so far.
“We’ve had a great tour and the team has gelled well,”he said.
“The new signings have gelled well, everything the coaches have told us has come off and we’re just buzzing to get the season started.”
