“I think this is the day of my dreams,” said Macheda. “It was my dream to have my debut and to score a goal like that. I very much enjoyed it. Ferguson just play simple as you know. Just go out and play.”
Macheda ran in to the crowd after his winner and got past the stewards to hug a fella in the crowd.
“I run to my dad and my family and I went to them and they were celebrating too,” he explained.
