Weimann: I'm on a huge high after senior international debut

By Paul Brown

Andreas Weimann says he has confidence flowing through his system after making his senior debut for Austria during the international break.

Weimann may only have played for six minutes against Kazakhstan in a 0-0 World Cup qualifying draw but he says the moment will stay with him forever.

He says the buzz it's given him will benefit Villa big-time because he feels "ten feet tall."

He said: "I was so proud to play for the senior Austria side. I have said for a while that it's the biggest single honour you can have - to play for your country.

"I was really, really happy. I am confident at the moment because I feel good, I feel sharp and I'm playing in the Premier League for Villa.

"But I think that senior game will give me another 10%. It makes me even more confident. I feel ten feet tall.

"I am looking forward to the next chance when I can show the gaffer in the game. I will take the confidence I have into my performances with Villa.

"I know it wasn't long for me out on the pitch. I was only on for about six minutes but those six minutes are invaluable for me. I will never forget them.

"It was brilliant. Hopefully I will get a few more call-ups."

Make sure you're here to back the boys against Norwich City.
