Scoring against Barcelona, a team I grew up watching is very special for me – Weston McKennie


Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie has described his volley against Barcelona as a very special one for him.

The on-loan Schalke player fired home from a Juan Cuadrado cross in the 20th minute to double Juve’s advantage in between two Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalties.

“I was lucky enough to score in the last game I played against Torino in the derby and it’s the same thing I said then, me and Cuadrado have got the same hair, we have got the mental connection, it worked out good and like you said it was a special goal for me,” the American said.

“I think it’s my second Champions League goal and it was against Barcelona, a team that you watched growing up, so it was very special for me.”

McKennie blazes home from a Cuadrado’s cross.

Juventus handed Barcelona their first loss at the Nou Camp in the Champions League since 2009 to edge Barcelona and win group G.
