Mohammed Salisu says he is “proud and honoured” after scoring his first goal for Southampton in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
Salisu put the Saints in the lead against Sheffield United with a well controlled tap in finish after a low cross from Nathan Tella.
Southampton eventually won the game on penalties after Rhian Brewster and Oliver McBurnie failed to convert for the Championship side.
Salisu, who joined the Premier League side from Real Valladolid just over a year ago, shared his excitement on social media after scoring his first goal.
