Mnoga: Portsmouth debutÂ was best experience of my life
Pompey debutantÂ Haji Mnoga described his maiden Blues outing as '˜the best experience of his life'.
The 16-year-old was handed a start in the 1-0 Checkatrade Trophy victory over Crawley last night.
And he suitably impressed at right-back, before being replaced by Tom Naylor just after the hour mark.
His debut represents a meteoric rise for the former Trafalgar School pupil, who only signed first-year scholarship terms with the club back in June.
He is the second-youngest player to represent the Blues in post-war history, behind Joe Hancott, who made his debut in last season's Checkatrade Trophy.
Using his official Twitter account, @hajimnoga, Mnoga thanked those who have helped him along the way.
And the teenager expressed hope that plenty more Pompey first-team appearances wouldÂ be on offer in the future with yet more hard work.
His tweet read: '˜What a feeling making my first team debut!
'˜Best experience of my life and hopefully more to come.
'˜Big thank you to everyone who has helped me so far on this journey.
'˜Now it's time to get my head down and keep working harder.'
