Michael Obafemi scored his first goal for Southampton on Saturday. The 18-year-old came off the bench to put his side 3-1 ahead and seal the three points away to Huddersfield.
Obafemi was six minutes on the pitch when he found the net. Just moments earlier, he had missed a glorious opportunity but he did not allow that to kill his confidence.

Post-match, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, called it a "perfect" moment for Obafemi.
"I hoped that his speed gives us more opportunities to come behind the last row and he had two or three more chances I think," the Austrian told the Southern Daily Echo.
I am happy for him.
He is a cool guy, really has quality and I think after his injury coming back with a goal is perfect for him.
The goal made him Southampton's youngest ever goalscorer in the Premier League beating the record of Dexter Blackstock by eight days.
