Real Madrid's Robben: I'm getting stronger

Arjen Robben was happy to see more action for Real Madrid in yesterday's 1-1 draw at Real Valladolid.

Madrid had to fight back to earn a point and Robben said afterwards: "Today it showed that a tough opponent does not need a big name. The game was very fast, similar to in England.

"I did well, though it was only my second game. I know I slowed a bit, but I will be better for the run."

Real striker Ruud van Nistelrooy also said: "Valladolid were excellent. We had a lot of problems, we were behind and had to attack.

"A point from here is very good, especially taking into account the situation we were in."
