Udinese's 17yo keeper Scuffet earns cleansheet on debut

Udinese's 17 year-old goalkeeper Simone Scuffet kept cleansheet on his debut in their 2-0 win over Bologna.

Zeljko Brkic pulled out during the warm-up and he was rushed in at the last minute.

"I never expected to play this game, but in the warm-up Brkic had a problem and the Coach decided to send me out," Scuffet told Sky Sport Italia.

"It was an incredible feeling, as a Friulano experiences marvellous sensations having this Udinese jersey on his back.

"Today's victory will help us to emerge from a dangerous position in the table, so we are calmer now.

"Dedication? I dedicate this game to my beloved Friuli region."
