Robben thrilled with Real Madrid debut

Arjen Robben was thrilled to make his Real Madrid debut in last night's 2-1 defeat of Werder Bremen.

The former Chelsea winger entered the field on 83 minutes as a replacement for Raul and almost setup Ruud van Nistelrooy for Real's third goal two minutes later.

After the game, Robben was presented a watch by Real president Ramon Calderon to celebrate his debut and the Dutchman said: "I am very happy. It was a good start. It has been very special.

"The welcome from the fans was fantastic. We have great qualities."
