Did you expect a blog with big words and promises Friday night? Well it wouldn’t have been unusual for MS Odense to act like that when good things happen. This time we act different though and hopefully it also show just a bit of some seriousness on our behalf. Last Friday ‘Goldenboy’ Paolo Baggio rushed to Hampden in Scotland to represent his country and he was among the manager chosen eleven against Kenya. Only a few hours before the game ‘Goldenboy’ was elected into the squad and with his place in the starting lineup he played his NT game number 4 at the age of 25½.
“We are proud and also a little humble by Baggio’s apperences Friday night” Club president Scavo said when it was a reality that MS Odense had a player on a national team for the first time. “We knew that he was a contender in the future but see him both in the squad and then on the field at Hampden was a special moment for a minor club like ours. Baggio’s comeback in Odense has been great and he has preformed very well as we expect from him. Maybe that is why he got the chance” said Scavo. Who doesn’t think his goalkeeper will get more games in a near future. “We have to be patience. Work hard and steady to reach the goal and make Baggio Scotland’s number one goalkeeper. It will take a long time and we need some luck to make it happen. We will try though” Scavo said.
The man himself is taking it easy and keeps his feet on the ground. “It was really nice to be a part of the team again and luckily we got the win. I was satisfied with my performance and hopefully it will give me a chance to either play or be on the bench this week when we play Brazil at Campo do Flor. We have to wait and see what happens. The choice is the managers alone. I can only play the best i can and hope it is enough” was the words from Goldenboy Paolo Baggio – MS Odense’s first national player and he was also the clubs first U20 player.
