FC Lusitanos’ general secretary admitted he was “frozen” when his team was paired with the Irons in the first qualifying round of the Europa League.
Diogo Fosta – whose club qualified by finishing second in the Andorran league – said: “We are a humble team – not very famous. We are going to play against a millionaire team.
Lusitanos are competing at this stage of the Europa League for the fifth time, but are yet to win a game.
Fosta told BBC London 94.9 “We are a humble team – not very famous. We are going to play against a millionaire team.
“We can’t compare the teams. We are very anxious to play in the Upton Park stadium. It is going to be a unique experience. We are very happy.
“Just for the experience of a Premier League team, it is a great challenge for us. We can grow more with this experience and these opportunities.”
