Seb Dabrowski | I want to take this confidence forward
Seb Dabrowski hopes to carry the confidence of his fine individual finish into the rest of the season after striking late on to snatch a point for Swansea City Under-21s against their Crewe counterparts.
Having trailed 2-0, Josh Thomas pulled a goal back for the Swans two minutes from time, netting his second goal in two games after scoring against Arsenal last Wednesday.
Wales age-grade international Dabrowski, who has been at Swansea City since the age of nine, came on as a substitute in the 67th minute and earned the visitors a share of the spoils with seconds remaining as he cut inside two defenders to hammer a right-footed shot into the top corner.
The Polish-born defender stepped up to the under-18 squad during the 2020-21 season and has made frequent appearances at under-23 and now under-21 level despite being just 16 years of age.
"I'm really happy with the performance from myself and the boys. I got my opportunity and I think I took it well," he said.
"It was last minute, I wasn't going to create any other chances by playing backwards, so I just thought I'll go for it and it paid off.
"I think everyone needs a bit of confidence in themselves, just be confident because those chances will pay off. When they start paying off, you will be capable of doing it over and over.
"Overall, I believe we did well in the game. It was a good team effort, especially in the last 15 minutes to keep going and come back to get a draw.
"The goal has really boosted my confidence and I'm going to try and take that back to the under-18s and hopefully kick on from here."
