Not so long ago, when the duo had to hear from their own party supporters. Ajax forward Sibastia Aleya seems to have answered him on average. With four goals in his Champions League debut, he said he had always dreamed of such a match.
Sebastia scored four goals in his debut as the second player in the history of the Champions League. Marco von Basten, one of the best footballers in the history of the Netherlands, scored the first four goals of his tournament debut; Against Yettebury for AC Milan in 1992.
Ajax beat Sebastia 5-1 in the first match of the group stage on Wednesday night at Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon.
Sebastia has scored four goals in four matches in the domestic league so far this season. And he scored four goals in the opening match on the best stage of Europe. However, the start of the season in August was bitter for him and his team. Sebastia’s side were beaten by Ajax in a 4-0 defeat to PSV Eindhoven at the Johan Cruyff Shield at the start of the season.
Forgetting those memories of hardship, this player of Cote d’Ivoire wants to enjoy his record-breaking moment.
“It’s the best match of my life. Something (four goals in a match) is just a dream. One can wait a lifetime for such a match.”
“Everyone should enjoy this kind of match. These are wonderful memories. I had to score goals, not only for myself, but also for the team and the fans.”
His name was dropped from the list of players provided by Ajax for the knockout stages of the Europa League last season due to an administrative error. As a result, he has to sit on the sidelines and watch the team play. The 26-year-old footballer said that the wait increased his urge to do something special.
“It increases interest in performing better.”
Sebastia joined Ajax from West Ham last January in exchange for a record transfer fee in the club’s history. After building an outstanding reputation, Coach Egic Ten Ha praised Kot For Voyer’s forward.
“Four goals in the Champions League. It’s great for me. I remember, (Marco) von Basten did it (4 goals). He’s one of the great icons in football and that’s how big and historic the achievement is.”
