Liam Walker opened his Pompey account and admitted: I’m living the dream.

The 24-year-old midfielder got his maiden Blues strike in last night’s 2-0 success at AFC Wimbledon.

His delightful chipped finish at Kingsmeadow crowned another fine display.

Walker is hoping to earn himself a contract at Fratton Park – and the signs are promising that he will complete a Roy of the Rovers move to the English game.

A deal would see him arrive at the club after impressing while playing against Pompey for Gibraltar.

Walker, whose family are from Waterlooville, will wait to see what fate befalls the Blues tomorrow in their bid for survival.

He is then keeping his fingers crossed there will be a deal on the table for him.

Walker said: ‘I’m really happy.

‘I’ve been looking for the break for ages – where better for it to happen than Portsmouth.

‘I’m enjoying every moment of it – the training, games and getting to know people.

‘You never know what is going to happen, you just keep working.

‘The gaffer hasn’t said a lot, I’m just concentrating on the football side of it.

‘When he’s ready to have a word about it with me he will.

‘It’s always nice to hear the gaffer has nice words for me.

‘It’s him who has brought me to the club, so I appreciate that.

‘Obviously, I’d work my guts out to wear the shirt every weekend.

‘My fitness is getting better each day but I’m not at my peak.

‘It’s a case of working hard and trying to get better each day.’
