The Venezuelan frontman was delighted to get on the scoresheet and quickly turned his sights to going all the way to lifting the cup title on June 24.

"Yes, I'm very happy for myself and the team. We want to win this cup," Paez told SuperSport TV after the match.

"My first start was here [at Athlone Stadium] against Ajax, this is my second time in the startig line-up and fifth or sixth game [in total].

"Yes, I'm very happy for myself, like I've said, but this is for the team. Together we won, my teammates helped me to score and this [result] is important," he concluded.
