Following the game, he admitted he was annoyed to be substituted after netting four, because he wanted more.
"To be honest after the game, he [coach Lucien Favre] asked me how many I scored," he told ESPN.
"He asked me: Did you score three?" "I said: No, four. Only four because you subbed me out. So I'm a bit mad at him (**smiles**) right now but that's how it is."
