Colombo: 'I just wanted to scream'

Milan forward Lorenzo Colombo ‘just wanted to scream’ when the ball hit the net and hopes his first goal will be ‘the beginning of a long career’.

The Rossoneri picked up a 3-2 win against Bodø/Glimt and have secured a place in the play-off against Rio Ave, as Hakan Calhanoglu scored a brace and 18-year-old Colombo scored on his first start with the Diavolo.

“I just wanted to scream when I saw the ball go in,” Colombo told MilanTV. “It was a unique emotion. I tried to understand where the ball would arrive, and it went well.

“My teammates gave me advice on how to position myself on the pitch, especially when we don’t have possession.

“Their help and advice are important to me. At half-time, they complimented me, but it was contained because there was still another half left.”

Colombo was given the chance to play when Zlatan Ibrahimovic tested positive for coronavirus and he hopes the goal against the Norwegians is ‘just the beginning’.

“I haven’t done anything yet. It’s just the first game and the first goal,” he added. “I hope it’s the beginning of a long career.

“I remember my growth in the Milan youth academy well. Milan are my home, they helped me grow. I’m confident, I have to work hard for a great future.”
