Manchester United Under-23s midfielder, Ethan Galbraith, has put on the jersey of the senior squad of Northern Ireland this Thursday at Windsor Park.
Northern Ireland defeated Luxembourg 1-0 in yesterday’s friendly match at Windsor Park.
And apart from the victory, another good thing came out of the game: the debut of Manchester United Under-23s midfielder Ethan Galbraith.
“I’m lost for words,” Galbraith was quoted by the club’s official website.
“It was absolutely unreal, especially in front of a big crowd and at Windsor Park. Even walking out in the stadium was incredible.”
”Warming up on the side, I felt like everyone was just watching me and I was getting a bit nervous but then, when Michael gave me the call, the nerves went away and the adrenaline started kicking in, so it was good,” he added.
“I enjoyed it. I tried to get on the ball, but the ball wouldn’t fall for me. Eventually, when it did fall for me, I played a ball through to Shane [Ferguson] and I was feeling quite confident.”
”I thought it would have taken me a bit longer [to settle] but felt I started out alright,” the youngster commented.
“The season is shaping up very well for me. I’ve been getting a lot of game time with United and to play tonight was unreal.”
Big congratulations to #MUAcademy midfielder Ethan Galbraith, who made his senior international bow for Northern Ireland last night 👏👏
