Brighton's Kazenga LuaLua delighted with first goal

Brighton and Hove Albion winger Kazenga LuaLua said his first senior goal for the club is an important milestone.

The 19-year-old found the net from a free-kick in the Seagulls' 2-0 League One win over MK Dons on Saturday.

He told BBC Sussex: "The gaffer [Gus Poyet] said if we got a free kick near the box he wanted me to take it because he's seen my shots in training.

"I am delighted with my first professional goal, it's important for me. It was a good one."

The youngster celebrated with an acrobatic celebration reminiscent of his brother, former Newcastle and Portsmouth forward Lomana.

"I've been waiting a long time to score a goal and celebrate like that. To do a backflip at a home game in front of the fans was brilliant," he said.

"Hopefully there will be more goals to come for me."

Poyet told BBC Sussex: "He was desperate to score a goal. I'm not sure if he will score a more spectacular one."
