Stefano Okaka: Backheel goal for Watford vs. Everton not my first

Watford's Stefano Okaka has said his backheeled goal in Saturday's 3-2 win over Everton was not the first of its kind he had scored.

The Italian striker's opener -- his first for the club -- was stylishly flicked in from Nordin Amrabat's cross, and he later added another as the hosts triumphed at Vicarage Road.

Okaka told Sky Sports: "I've scored three or four like this -- and it's important because we won, and we had lost two games."

The 27-year-old, a bit-part player since joining from Anderlecht in the summer, said he had always remained confident that the goals would come.

He added: "I was quiet because I know my quality and my teammates know my quality. I was injured for two months so it's not easy -- but everyone helped me."

Fellow striker Troy Deeney added: "The big man was fantastic today, and we've got a real powerhouse on our hands. The two of us can cause problems."
