Raúl de Tomás proud of Real Madrid breakthrough

Raúl de Tomás was full of pride after featuring for Real Madrid in the friendly defeat to AS Roma.

The young striker became the first Dominican Republic player to turn out for Real's first team.

"I'm happy because it's a privilege to be with the first team and play with them on the pitch. The result wasn't ideal, but I'm starting and that's the important thing.

"The boss told me that as always, you have to go little by little and carry on working. You're never going to be the finished article from the off. I'm working well and we're starting, and it's a long journey."
