Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata was delighted to see action in victory over Espanyol.

It was the Castilla star's first appearance of the season for the first team.

"The team won and took three very important points. The coach congratulated me for the three points and my performance. We look forward to winning more and achieving our goals," Morata said afterwards.

"I always try to learn when I join the first team because there are many World Cup and Ballon d'Or winners on the squad. Every player on the first team looks after us academy players in a special way, instilling in us the values of this club.

"I wish for all academy players to work hard, be humble and do their very best. They have to believe it is possible to reach the first team."
