Alcacer: First Barca goal is a relief

Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer was delighted to score his first goal for the club on Tuesday in their 5-3 win over Al Ahli in a friendly match in Doha.

Alcacer contributed with a headed finish in the second half to open his account for the club and he will now be looking to add more goals in competitive fixtures.

"Of course I am excited. I wanted to score," he said to SER after the match. "The coach has already told me that I am working well and I hope it helps the team. I needed that goal to gain more confidence."

The 23-year-old joined Barca from Valencia at the start of the season and has made 11 appearances in all competitions, providing one assist.

Alcacer added: "It's clear that when you come to a new team, you need time to adapt. I am fine and I need to keep working hard as the coach told me."
