Eric Lichaj had some comments following his debut against Rapid Vienna last week.
Here’s our scouting report on Lichaj’s game.
He said: “It was a really good atmosphere in Austria.
“All the Vienna fans were jumping up and down – they were actually throwing popcorn at me at one point and I think they were throwing beer at Brad Guzan.
“But it was a good atmosphere to play in for my first competitive game for Villa.
“I didn’t get chance to sample any of the popcorn after the game! It was too bad we couldn’t hold on for the win but it was a good, solid draw.”
