“I got the opportunity to start the game and I thought to myself do you know what, today could be the day,” Hudson-Odoi added.
The 18-year-old also revealed he will celebrate his first senior goal with his family.
“With all my family,” Hudson-Odoi said as he revealed plans to celebrate his first senior goal.
