“I will never forget this goal for as long as I live,” Kulusevski told Juventus TV.

“It was my debut Champions League goal, the first I have scored this season and it was even a header!”

He also spoke to Amazon Prime Italia, who showed the match in Italy, and described the moment.

“I saw the ball clip the upright on the way in, so I was afraid it was going to go out. It’s a very important victory for the team and important goal for me.

“I came on and tried to make the difference. It was a struggle at first, but I made sure I was in the right place at the right time.”

It was a less than stellar performance from the Bianconeri, but a fourth consecutive 1-0 victory in all competition.

“We played very badly in the first and second half, but the strength of a squad is to win even when playing badly.”
