Royston Drenthe was delighted to play his part in Real Madrid's derby victory at Atletico on Saturday.

It was the young Dutchman who won the injury-time penalty that was converted by Real striker Gonzalo Higuain to earn the visitors a dramatic three points.

Drenthe remarked: "The best thing is winning the penalty that helped the team. It was a great joy because in the last minute to get a penalty is always great. We were ahead the whole game and their equaliser motivated us. Fortunately I earned that penalty to win the game."

It was Atletico defender Johnny Heitinga who fouled Drenthe and he added: "I do not know him and we did not talk. He is Dutch, but he is Atletico and I am Real Madrid. Each defends their interests."
