Ben Waine, the 21-year-old New Zealand international, has had a remarkable start to his first season in English football. The former Wellington Phoenix player has been making waves for his new club, Plymouth Argyle, and recently made history by scoring his first league goal in the English Football League (EFL) One.
Waine’s debut goal came in a crucial match against Morecambe, where he came on as a substitute in the second half. With the match tied, Waine showed his goal-scoring prowess by finding the back of the net in the 86th minute of the game. His goal paved the way the victory for Argyle and propelled them to the top of the EFL One table. The final result of the match was a 3-1 away win for Argyle.
This was not Waine’s first goal for Argyle, as he had previously scored in a match against Bristol Rovers in the EFL Trophy. However, his league goal was an important milestone for the young All Whites member, who is quickly adapating to European football.
With Argyle pushing for promotion to the Championship, Waine’s contributions could prove crucial in the weeks to come. The team will be back in action this Sunday (09th April) as they take on Lincoln City, and fans will be hoping to see Waine continue his goal-scoring form and help Argyle secure another important victory.
