Crewe midfielder Antoni Sarcevic has described his winning goal in the 2-1 friendly win over Wolves on Saturday as one of the best he has ever scored.

The 19-year-old netted from 25 yards to give the League Two side victory over their Premier League opponents.

"If there's a shooting opportunity for me, I'm going to take it," Sarcevic told BBC Radio Stoke. "That one just flew in, it was unbelievable."

Kevin Doyle had equalised for Wolves after Shaun Miller's first-half opener.

Sarcevic joined Crewe from non-league Woodley Sports at the start of last season but made just six substitute appearances in his first year at Gresty Road.

The club decided to take up the year's option on his contract and manager Dario Gradi says Sarcevic has shown real improvement in recent weeks.

Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke: "The goal was no fluke. That's why he's still here.

"He had a bumpy ride in his first year here and he's come out of it very well. I've been impressed with his attitude and his approach.

"I think he felt the world and me was against him, but he's responded to our demands and he's more responsible with his play.

"He's one that can go home really pleased with his performance today."

Wolves, who fielded a squad boasting several full internationals, gave a debut to Roger Johnson, who joined from Birmingham City on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old captained his new club in the first half as both managers made 11 changes at half time.
