The 22 year old defender is now hoping to keep his place in the side for the visit to Premier League champions Manchester City.
The Shamrock Rovers signing, said: "I'm hoping to keep my place, I've got confidence. I'll go into training and train well and hopefully I'll stay in the team for Manchester City.
"This debut has been a long time coming, but, when you get your chance, you've got to take it. It's a great experience, it brings out the best in you. You know where you stand when you play against the best.
"It's a massive experience but I'm just looking to kick on."
