Real Madrid coach Ancelotti: Vinicius Jr excellent - but team effort for win at Shakhtar

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with victory at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Real won 5-0 at their Champions League opponents in Ukraine.

Afterwards, Ancelotti said: "My team thrives on incredible ambition which is why we've produced the perfect match. After our recent results it was vital to react and we've done it well. We did what we promised to. This was a high level match. We defended well and in athletic or physical terms were fresh and sharp until the end.

"Vinícius finished very well indeed but it was a team effort to produce the goals. He's a young guy, a great player in the making, learning and right now he's brimming with confidence.

"But the special praise I'll give is to the entire team."
