An evening of emotions at Luz! Nuno Tavares, a 19-year-old youngster, made his debut in the team led by Bruno Lage and, in addition to the good display, he provided the assist for Chiquinho's goal.

In the end of the Presentation Match against Anderlecht, the left-back spoke to the journalists in the mixed zone.

“I enjoyed my debut, but I think we could have done better. The assist? This is practice. We applied it on the pitch and it was successful”, he started by saying.

As for a place in the starting XI…

“That's not up to me to decide! I do my job and it's up to the gaffer Bruno Lage to know. I'm just going to do my job”, he claimed.
