Brussels - was all smiles after stepping off the bench to score twice in Borussia Dortmund's comprehensive 3-0 win away to 33-time Belgian champions RSC Anderlecht in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

Speaking exclusively to after the game, the Colombian international summed up his thoughts on his first goals at Europe's top table, Dortmund's contrasting league form and this weekend's clash with rock-bottom Hamburger SV... Adrian Ramos, how do you feel after the game?

Adrian Ramos: Obviously I'm over the moon. For one thing because of the win and for another because of my two goals. I hope it continues like this for us and for me. What does it mean to you to score in the Champions League for the first time?

Ramos: It's a really special moment when you score in the competition for the first time. I've always dreamt of scoring in the Champions League. It gives me the belief going forward. You haven't always started at BVB. Is that going to change now?

Ramos: It goes without saying I'd love to start every game, but there are so many quality players at Dortmund from front to back. In that respect, it's essential to be on top of your game when the chance comes. Dortmund are already in a great position after recording two wins on the bounce in the Champions League. Is qualification for the last 16 a formality?

Ramos: No, that's just how things are at the moment. We mustn't take our foot off the gas in our next game in Istanbul. We've got to keep going. How do you explain the difference between BVB's form in the Bundesliga and the Champions League?

Ramos: That's just football. Things happen - you don't want them to, but they do. We shouldn't get hung up on it. We have to take each day as it comes and keep working hard. That's how we do things. We're fully focussed on the next game against Hamburger SV now. Is it dangerous playing the league's bottom club?

Ramos: I'm not thinking about Hamburg's position in the table. On Saturday, we have to go for it and try to give all we've got to claim the three points. We need them.
