Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge was delighted with his goal in their Champions League victory over MSK Zilina.

Chelsea thumped Slovakia's Zilina thanks to a Nicolas Anelka double and goals from Michael Essien and Sturridge.

Striker Sturridge, 21, said: "Scoring my first European goal is something I have dreamed of since I was a kid.

"I'm delighted and, hopefully, there will be many more to come.

"We played the ball quickly and wanted to make moves in the attacking half of the field and defend well - and that worked.

"There are a lot of world-class players in this team and, hopefully, I'll be playing a lot more often with them. The fans got behind their team but we were strong. We came here to win and to get three points on the board is fantastic."
