Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo praises Oscar
Roberto Di Matteo has praised Oscar after the Brazilian midfielder ignited Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
The 21-year-old marked his first ever Blues start by scoring twice from outside the box at Stamford Bridge, before Juve hit back through Arturo Vidal and Fabio Quangliarella.
''It was a great debut for Oscar,'' said Di Matteo. ''It was the right moment for him to start the game, we needed a bit of time to work with him and he was perfect tonight with the tactical information we gave him. The second goal was a wonderful goal and it is great to see we have a player like that in our ranks.
''He is a big talent and he has a bit of everything. We shouldn't forget he is still a young man but he is quite established and he broke through to the Brazil team and that is quite difficult.''
Oscar, who has been capped 9 times by Brazil, joined Chelsea from Internacional in a deal worth £25 million earlier this summer.
