Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior delighted to score in Copa triumph

Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior was delighted to score in their 6-1 Copa del Rey rout of Mellila.

Vinicius admits he tried to entertain the fans last night.

He said, “It was a great performance and we're extremely satisfied. We were able to play well and win the game, which is the most important thing. My goal was a long time in coming but I'm pleased and a bit more relaxed having scored. The players told me the goal would come, I've worked very hard, taking gradually. All my teammates have helped me so much since my arrival here and I'm happy to see the team winning.

“I've dreamed of playing for Madrid since I was a boy and if I score goals, I'm going to kiss the badge. When I play with Asensio, we link up and have exchanged three passes, but it's the same with the other players too. The lambretta is all part of my game, the same as any other Brazillian footballer, we always try and enjoy our football."
