Confident Fiorini enjoying Imps life

20 November 2021

Lewis Fiorini did not get much downtime during the international break - but feels refreshed after playing twice for Scotland U21s.

The midfielder, on loan at the Imps from Manchester City, played against Kazakhstan - against whom he struck his first goal at that level in an impressive performance - and Belgium.

He said: “I enjoyed going away, I didn’t get much of a break as I played two 90 minutes but it’s always good to represent your country and test yourself at international level.

“It’s a chance to raise my profile and another platform to perform and try to catch the eye. Scottish football is in a good place at the moment, and are in a good position to try and qualify for the next big tournament.”

Fiorini has established himself as a regular member of the Imps’ matchday squad this season, and says he has gained a lot from the experience.

He added: “It’s still quite new but I’m learning a lot each week and really enjoying it. We’ve got a busy schedule as we play in three competitions in the next few weeks so there’s plenty of opportunities and everybody needs to be ready.

“In this league a lot can change in seven days and in a couple of weeks you can be in a lot better place - and hopefully in a fortnight’s time we’ll be climbing the table and through in two cup competitions.”

The Imps are back at the LNER Stadium twice in a week as Portsmouth visit on Tuesday 23 November then Accrington Stanley come to town on Saturday 27 November. Click here to book your ticket.
