Ivan Rakitic was delighted with the goal which earned Schalke a point in the 2-2 draw with reigning champions Stuttgart.

The 19-year-old Croatian claimed his first goal for the Royal Blues on his Bundesliga debut to earn his side a hard-fought point. Levan Kobiashvili put Schalke ahead before Stuttgart scored twice in four second-half minutes through Sami Khedira and a Pavel Pardo penalty.

But Rakitic levelled after coming off the bench and he told the club´s official website, "It´s wonderful. I believe one cannot start better. I´m pleased for the team and for myself."
