Domingos Quinos wrote his name into Watford history on Saturday when he became the club’s youngest ever Premier League goalscorer at just 19 years and 27 days old, on only his second Premier League start.

The young starlet was picked up from West Ham United just moments before the transfer window closed in August and is starting to make a name for himself at Vicarage Road.

At the time, his goal against Cardiff seemed to be an impressive contribution to a comfortable win, but following a nervy ending for the Hornets in which they conceded twice in two minutes, it turned out to be the strike that ensured the three points stayed with Watford.

Speaking about his achievements after the match, Quina expressed pride in his accomplishment and of his joy at being able to help his team get an important three points.

He said: “I didn’t know that I was the youngest scorer, but I’m very happy with it.

“I’m happy to help the team and that it was the final goal to get us the win, I’m happy and I’m proud of it.”

Going forward, Quina aims to make himself a mainstay at Vicarage Road, a place he says he now feels settled in, and and hopes he can produce more performances like the two against Everton and Cardiff in which he believes he proved some doubters wrong.

He said: “I’m very settled because I’m doing what I always wanted to do which is play first-team football and Watford has given me the chance to do it.

“I always plan to do my best, I think that’s all I can do. I always try and put myself in high places and try and reach my targets.

“One of them is to play in the Premier League because physically, people doubt me and think I’m not good enough to play Premier League, but in my head I think I’m good enough and game by game and as I’m getting more and more minutes I think I can do it.

“Personally, if I can get 10 to 15 games by the end of the season, that would be a great achievement for me and everything else is a bonus.”
