Dutch-born youngster of Ghanaian parentage Myron Boadu is pleased after helping AZ Alkmaar to knock out BK Hacken from the 2019/2020 Europa League preliminary round.

Boadu, 18, put up a man of the match performance as he netted a goal and provided two assists to help Alkmaar humiliate the Swedish outfit away at the Bravida Arena on Thursday night.

“I  think they (BK Hacken) are a good team with many good players. I am very happy to have scored one goal and two assists. It was good for us. But the most fun thing was that it went so well for the team.  We made a good effort and went on to win,” Boadu told fotbollskanalen.

“There are things to grind on in the game. I’m not lazy, but sometimes it feels like I’m waiting for the ball too long instead of running and taking it. I need to change that.”

The teenager further mentioned that he believes in his qualities and wants to bang in the goals.

“I  believe in the team and the team believes in me. I want to score a lot of goals for the team this year.”

Boadu was born to Ghanaian parents in Amsterdam and currently features for the Under 19 team of the Dutch.
