Real Madrid midfielder Hazard 'happy' to be on scoresheet

Real Madrid midfielder Eden Hazard was delighted to score in their rout of Huesca.

The Belgian scored the opening goal of the match for Real Madrid with a spectacular strike in the 40th minute. He received just over half-way line, carried the ball and struck it with his left foot beyond Andrés Fernández.

The forward expressed his delight after the match: "It was a good goal, I receive Valverde's pass and shot.

"I'm happy for the team and for myself. When you score you get extra confidence. I'm tired, I want to play more games. My peak fitness will come with the matches and we've got another one in a few days. We need to keep training and be ready."
