Oviedo Thankful For Support

Mixed emotions for Costa Rican after first league start.

Bryan Oviedo thanked the Goodison faithful for making him feel at home during his first league start in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Norwich.

The Costa Rican international joined on deadline day of the summer transfer window and had previously only made appearances from the bench and in the Capital One Cup.

But David Moyes' reshuffled side handed the versatile left-sided player an opportunity from the first whistle against the Canaries - and Oviedo took full advantage by assisting Steven Naismith's 12th-minute opener.

He told evertontv: "I am so happy because of the fans. The support is very good and we need that support as a team, but I am not so happy at the moment because we wanted to win. It is difficult because everybody is sad."

Sebastien Bassong's last-minute leveller took the gloss off another attacking, if not quite clinical, performance from the Blues and Oviedo admitted that the players must now make amends when Arsenal visit Goodison on Wednesday evening.

"It was a difficult game," he reflected. "We were winning for almost all of it and then Norwich scored in the last minute. We need to get it out of our heads because the next game is coming in a few days. We need to be prepared for that."

And Oviedo insisted he is ready for his next opportunity.

He said: "When I play, I always try to help the team and play well, for me and for Everton of course."
