Zidane was also pleased to have Keylor Navas again available.
On James, he stated: "James played centrally. He didn't have many chances to score, but he did a fine job there in the middle. We were looking to put in a good performance and defend well and we did just that. We were just four minutes away from winning."
For Keylor, Zidane added: "He's been out for four months and I thought he did well. He's got the character to play at any stadium and he put in a good performance. The goal was unlucky and these things happen. I'm very pleased with his display."
