“It's good to play with him and to see him scoring and assisting is important for any forward and we need to keep up between us what we've been doing.

As a striker, you're not going to score every time, but it's important not to miss every time.

“If we score two goals in a game I think we expect to win it. It's difficult to take, but we move on to the next one now.”
