Arsenal starlet Ryo Miyaichi was thrilled with his first team debut for Feyenoord on the weekend.

The exciting Japanese talent was handed a shock start against Vitesse Arnhem, having only signed on-loan from Arsenal last week.

Miyaichi, who had only played at schoolboy level in Japan, said: "I've never been so tired.

"I was quite nervous, or rather excited. I come from a college team and never had the chance to play in the J-League.

"I enjoyed the day and the support of my teammates. Too bad we did not win."
