Plymouth boss Ian Holloway hailed Akos Buzsaky after his two goals helped his side to a 3-1 win at Norwich.
The Hungarian ace struck twice to help Plymouth come from behind to take all three points at Carrow Road.
Holloway believes the recent arrivals of fellow countrymen Peter Halmosi and Krisztan Timar have helped Buzsaky settle at Home Park
"I have never seen Akos so happy as he's been in the last few days," said Holloway.
"When you are the only person out there who speaks your language, a football pitch can be a very lonely place.
"It can make it very difficult to settle in and that is one of the reasons why I brought the other two Hungarian lads in.
"First and foremost they are good players but they are also helping Akos to feel at home, probably for the first time since he's been here.
"It has been very difficult for him - I certainly wouldn't have left my family to travel to a foreign country when I was his age. I was happy to stay at home with my mum and dad in Bristol.
"So I take my hat off to him. You saw what he's capable of in the second half. They were two fantastic free-kicks. He does that all the time in training but so far not in a game and hopefully that will all change now.
"There's no doubt the boy has got a tremendous amount of ability and I believe the world is his oyster. He can go as high as he wants.
"In this game you've got to enjoy yourself to be any good at what you do and I think you saw that today.
"I had a couple of new people in and it looked as though we were strangers at times in the first half.
"I just told the lads to play the football that I know they are capable of and I was delighted with our second half performance.
"There's no doubt we have a lot of talent here and they certainly showed that after the break. Now the challenge is to build on this."
Norwich boss Peter Grant was fuming at his side's display and revealed he held a dressing room inquest with the players after the final whistle.
"I thought we were fortunate to go in at half-time ahead because we were poor," said Grant.
"In the second half it just went from worse to worse.
"To concede two goals from free-kicks like that just beggars belief. Too many of the players out there were mentally weak, they were just content to pass the buck to someone else. It was a totally unacceptable performance.
"There's no doubt about that. We do not give ourselves a chance when we play in that fashion.
"I've got a feeling too many players are in the comfort zone and they need to be a freshness around the place. The group is going to be changed, make no mistake about that."
Grant also revealed that top scorer Rob Earnshaw faces a spell on the sidelines with a groin injury which forced him to miss the defeat to Plymouth.
"He's going to see a specialist and I'm not expecting the best of news," concluded Grant.
