At the final whistle, the Spain midfielder said: "It was a goal and three points, and that is all it was, otherwise I do not know. I tried to help my team and I'm very happy to be back playing after two months.
"The fans gave me much love and I felt happy for the support received during that time. It is always difficult to come back from holidays or international week, but the team has overcome in this case with three very important points. It was a happy night."
