Wind: Great having youngsters in form

Jonas Wind says he already feels like one of the seasoned veterans at F.C. Copenhagen following his leading display in Sunday's 3-0 win over Vejle where 18-year-old Hakon Haraldsson got on the scoresheet.

Haraldsson headed home off the crossbar midway through the first half after Jens Stage had earlier put FCK in front.

Wind stepped up to wrap up the win from the penalty spot after the hour mark, and says he is getting used to leading the line with other youngsters around him.

"It was great to be able to give something back to the fans," he said. "I ran hard and felt like one of the older players, because even though I'm only 22 I'm one of the experienced ones (in this group). Especially on a day like today, where we almost played with half of the U19 team.

"I was not nervous about the penalty kick, even though I missed the last one."

Stage, 24, has now scored nine goals on his last 12 outings for FCK and said: "We showed good energy from the first minute and got the start we wanted.

"It was great, because we also owed the fans something after our recent matches. We had a lot of the young players on the field today, and they had plenty to offer and showed it today.

"I think Pep (Biel) and I complement each other nicely in the midfield. It was a slightly different role than I have had in recent matches, but I still had the opportunity to do some deep runs once in a while, and that also gave us a goal."

Full-back Peter Ankersen added: “Today we showed what we expect of ourselves, and especially here in Parken. We followed the game plan completely, and those who came in during the match did well too."
