Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain was delighted with his winner against Racing Santander last night.

The Argentina international struck the only goal of the game.

He said: "We were expected to win before the game and did enough to do so. I'm pleased with the goal, but more so about the three points."

Asked about the return to full fitness of teammate Cristiano Ronaldo in time for their Champions League clash with FC Zurich, Higuain added: "It's a great joy, but we must be calm, because the injury has been strong and he has for many days not played."
