Weston McKennie thrilled to make Juventus debut

In the first game of the season, Juventus beat Sampdoria 3-0 and the United States international played the full 90 minutes. It's a promising sign for McKennie who has impressed new manager Pirlo in training in the run-up to their first game of the season.

After the game, the Juve number 14 took to Instagram to express how happy he was to play his first game in Serie A: “Super excited to start this journey with this group and also to have made my debut for this amazing club,” he wrote.

What's next for McKennie

It is expected that Pirlo will keep Weston McKennie in the starting line-up for Juventus' next game - on Sunday 27 September when they visit Roma at the Olympic stadium. After that the champions will host Napoli on 4 October.
