'Fantastic feeling' for match-winner Hegazi

AHMED Hegazi says it is a “fantastic feeling” to score the winning goal in his first appearance at The Hawthorns.

The Egypt international defender netted a header to claim a 1-0 win over AFC Bournemouth in the Club’s opening game of the 2017/18 Premier League season.

“It is a very good win and a fantastic feeling,” he said.

“To start well was very important for us."


Hegazi also highlighted the importance of shutting out the Cherries in the opening game.

"The clean sheet is the first thing you think about as a defender.

"It's very important to the team."

And getting those first three Premier League points of the season was crucial to the 26-year-old.

"The first game is always very important for the team and for the start of the season.

"We can take enormous confidence from this."
