Callum Hudson-Odoi happy to score for Nottingham Forest on competitive debut

English-born Ghanaian Callum Hudson-Odoi has expressed excitement after scoring on his competitive debut for Nottingham Forest against Burnley in the Premier League.

The 23-year-old joined Nottingham Forest in the just ended transfer window after ending his stay with boyhood club, Chelsea as he seeks for playing time.

Hudson-Odoi was handed a starting role on his debut and made his presence count after scoring a stunning goal to earn The Reds a point at City Ground on Monday night.

“When T [Taiwo Awoniyi] dropped it back to me I had one thing on my mind and that was just to hit it,” he told Forest TV.

“I saw the angle and I thought if I get this inch-perfect this definitely goes in – which it did, so it was perfect.

“There was much to aim for so it had to be right in that corner. It was perfect to get a goal like that.

“It’s amazing to get a goal like that in front of everybody here in my first game for the club, but it’s disappointing not to get the three [points].

“I’m happy – happy with the goal, happy with the performance, I think we all are. But we know we can do better.”

The Ghanaian international lasted 71 minutes before he was replaced by Divock Origi.
