Ignacio Scocco hopes to see more first-team action soon after he enjoyed an impressive debut for Sunderland at the weekend.

PA Sport Report

Scocco received a standing ovation when he was replaced by Connor Wickham with 20 minutes left of the Black Cats' FA Cup game against Southampton on Saturday.

It was the Argentinian's first taste of English football since a January move from Internacional and now he is hungry for more minutes on the pitch.

"That is only just the beginning," Scocco said following the 1-0 win which sent Sunderland through to the quarter-finals.

"I obviously want to build on this game and show the fans that I have a lot more to offer.

"It was a memorable first game for me and a great result for Sunderland."
