HEARTS striker Bjorn Johnsen admits he was left proud but frustrated after making his international debut with Norway at the weekend.

The 25-year-old, who has confessed his Tynecastle future may be up in the air this summer after a bust-up with head coach Ian Cathro in last month’s defeat to St Johnstone, was a 71st-minute substitute against the Czech Republic on Saturday.

However, the Norwegians were left disappointed with a 1-1 draw in their World Cup qualifier and already have no chance of making it to Russia.

Johnsen said: “I’m very pleased with my debut and it’s a very proud moment for me.

“But I do not want to be on the pitch without winning, so it’s mixed feelings.

“I gave away some balls I should have kept, and might have been a bit too stressed in some situations.

“Perhaps I should have slowed down a bit and shown that I’m ready to play at a high level.”

He added to Aftonposten: “We should have won the match, we had more chances to score goals.

“Now we have to focus on winning and not being satisfied with this result.”
