Lookman who had been “adamant about choosing Germany,” over a club in England according to his Everton coach Sam Allardyce said he wanted to make an impact during a post-match reaction as published by Bundesliga official website.

"It's amazing. I'm happy to make my debut and to top it off with a goal is fantastic. The win and three points is the most important thing, so I'm happy.

"I think we played well as a team, kept possession well, played in between the lines. When I got the call to come on, I was just thinking of how I could make an impact, and thank God I did." said Lookman

The forward was handed his Leipzig debut against Gladbach on Saturday, three days after signing on loan from English Premier League side Everton, and wasted little time in impressing, rattling home for 1-0 win a little more than 10 minutes after coming on.

The London-born striker collected the ball around 30 yards from goal and with plenty of space in front of him.

Showing confidence and desire beyond his years and experience in the league, Lookman raced past as many as three defenders across the box before firing a perfect shot across Gladbach goalkeeper Tobias Sippel and into the bottom corner.
