France-based Warriors midfielder, Marshall Munetsi, made his full debut for Stade de Reims in the 2-0 win over Champions Paris Saint-Germain in a Ligue 1 encounter on Wednesday night.
Munetsi assisted the first goal when his cross from the right-wing was nodded into the net by Hassane Kamara.
Speaking to H-Metro from his French base on Thursday, Munetsi said he was not nervous after being thrown in the deep end against the star-studded PSG. He said:
It was a great feeling to make my first start as well as 90 minutes. I thank God and the manager for giving me the opportunity to play.
… I wasn’t nervous because I believe in myself and the ability I have and it’s also an opportunity to make a difference in the team.
I think credit goes to all the players and the manager. We had a game plan and it worked out so it’s all about the team and it’s a very happy team with young players and experienced players also.
Munetsi, who joined the French club on a four-year deal in June from South African club, Orlando Pirates, said having Zimbabwean players playing in the top leagues will help the Warriors going forward.
