Malcom enjoyed an eye-catching Champions League debut for Barcelona on Tuesday, as he scored within minutes of arriving as a second-half substitute for Ousmane Dembele.

It’s been a tough season so far for Malcom, he’s frequently been left out of the squad and has found game time hard to come by.

However, after starting in the Copa del Rey last week, he made a real impression at the San Siro and was delighted with his first goal in Europe’s top competition.

“Playing for Barça was a childhood dream. Making my UEFA Champions League debut and scoring will live with me forever,” he said.

“I will celebrate with the family tonight. My dream at Barça is starting, my dream is to make history and do great things. I have to thank the group for giving me confidence.

“I want to play more. Every day I train to be able to show that I have the quality to be in this group. Nothing in my life was easy.”

Malcom will hope his goal can be the start of something big at the Camp Nou. Barcelona host Real Betis on Sunday - is it time to give Malcom a start?
