Western Sydney’s Ghanaian winger Kwabena Appiah-Kubi was left satisfied his personal contribution despite his side’s failure to win the Australian League title.
The debutant lost 2-0 against Central Mariners last weekend to miss out on winning a historic Premier League crown.
The fast-paced youngster who was picked ahead of the more experienced Labinot Haliti to fill the void left by Youssouf Hersi’s suspension was phenomenal as he teased the defenders of their opponent with ease.
The 20-year-old says he was happy with his ability to handle the pressure of playing at the highest level in Australia.
“I’ve played the biggest game of my career at the moment, and I wasn’t nervous,” Kubi said.
“This is a massive motivation for next season no matter how many fans I play in front of, I won’t be nervous at all.
“ I turned up to the game without any nerves at all, and I was actually getting worried about when it’s going to kick in. “It kicked in when the whistle started the game, but then I was calm, I guess.
“It has done wonders. Coach believes in me, starting me in front of a few experienced players that could’ve played there.”
