Oscar has revealed that he dreamt of playing in the Champions League since he was a young boy, with the Chelsea star scoring a brace on his debut in the European tournament last night against Juventus.
The match-up was one of the most exciting meetings of the group stages, with the Blues hoping to defend their Champions League trophy and Juventus on course to becoming a power house in Europe once more.
And though it ended 2-2, with Chelsea unable to get the win, Oscar's first European match couldn't have gone much better, and the 21 year old says it was a dream that first started for him in his home country of Brazil.
"In Brazil, the people, the young boys, they dream about playing in the Champions League," he told the Chelsea website. "For me to realise the dream, I am very proud of that."
Oscar's second goal in particular was one of beauty last night, and while the youngster was happy to score, he admitted that ultimately he was disappointed because Chelsea couldn't take the three points.
"As soon as I made the first touch and I shot, I knew that the ball was going in,' he explained.
"I am very happy with the two goals but I would be much happier if the team had won the game. I hope that I can keep going and keep scoring goals like that.
He continued: "I have a lot of friends here and the Brazilian players are always together. I am very happy with my life and with the club."
It wasn't all good news for Oscar though, with the playmaker suffering from a knock to his ankle during the match.
Di Matteo will be hoping to get his young star back on board as quickly as possible, with the Blues facing a tough two weeks.
Besides facing Stoke and Arsenal in the Premier League over the next week and a half, Chelsea will take on Wolve sin the League Cup and travel to Denmark to play FC Nordsjaelland in their next Champions League match.
