Gustavo Scarpa has delivered an emotional message on Instagram after making his Nottingham Forest debut. The played made an entrance from the bench with 20 minutes of the 1-0 win over Southampton remaining.
It was a pretty decent cameo by the Brazilian. The 28-year-old produced two moments of magic on the night, with a superb whipped pass to Neco Williams really catching the eye.
There will, of course, be more to come from Scarpa. It’s easy to see why he was signed already though and Forest supporters will hope to see a little bit more of him as the season progresses.
With Jesse Lingard currently injured, Forest are somewhat short of options in attack. Having Scarpa available for selection can only be a good thing and it’s exciting to see what he can achieve.
Forest signed the left-footed player from Palmeiras. He has arrived at the club on a free transfer and moving to a top European league is something that the player has called a dream.
On Instagram after last night’s game, he claimed: “At least fifteen years dreaming with this moment!!! God is sooooo good. Debut on Premier League with a victory.”
Scarpa delivered emotional message and he could star at Forest
This was a decent debut by Scarpa and he had fans drooling with his couple of quality passes. Of course, they came against the division’s bottom club but still, he can only play what is in front of him.
Tougher challenges will be on the horizon. Scarpa looks like a player keen to live up to his billing and pick up where he left off last season when he won the Golden Ball in Brazil.
Scarpa is clearly determined to enjoy his time in England. He’s signed a long-term contract with Forest and now the ball is in his court when it comes to making this move a success.
The forward seems like a nice fit. He’s a good character, speaks exceptionally good English and already he looks like the sort of player who is good enough to play in the Premier League.
Scarpa could quickly develop into a fan favourite at the City Ground. He’s already got fans demanding that he features from the off and it will be interesting to see what role he plays under Steve Cooper.
