Urhoghide had been contemplating his future as a footballer in the summer after being released by AFC Wimbledon in the summer.
He explained: "What a stage to make my debut. I'm so happy. The hard work I have put in, people don't understand what I've been through.
"In the summer my contract ended with AFC Wimbledon, I was looking for a new club.
"It was tough, I didn't know where I was going to end up and Sheffield Wednesday picked me up.
"It's just great, to get the win, clean sheet, it's just a dream come true.
"When I came out, I was looking around, I was like, 'wow, this is a proper match day'. I loved it," adding he is grateful to manager Garry Monk for giving him an opportunity.
The young defender also revealed that his father and brother were in the crowd to watch him at the Amex Stadium.
His enthusiasm also carried over to Twitter following the game.

Former footballers were quick to comment on the interview, with names such as Peter Crouch and Ian Wright commending his honesty.

The interview comes just a month after young Celtic full-back Jeremie Frimpong uttered 'oh my days' in a post-match chat.
Frimpong spoke candidly to BT Sport after ten-man Celtic beat Rangers 1-0 to win the Scottish League Cup back in December.
He was the man sent off in the game and he recounted the emotions he felt.
The most relieved man in Hampden Park!
Fair to say Jeremie Frimpong was delighted to be picking up his first Celtic winners' medal.
One of the all-time post-match interviews! :joy: pic.twitter.com/kzp0l2h4AZ

"Oh my days," he said. "When you get sent off like that, I was inside panicking. It was the worst feeling ever.
"Every time Rangers got the ball I was just panicking. The time was going so slow, but the team held it through, and I am buzzing obviously."
In an age of uninteresting answers from footballers, it's lovely to see this kind of raw emotion.
