Vinicius Junior delighted to score in Real Madrid victory over Mallorca

Vinicius Junior was delighted to score in Real Madrid's 2-0 defeat of Real Mallorca.

After a number of electric displays, the Brazilian scored his first goal since the break in the season against Real Mallorca on Wednesday night.

"I'm very happy with my game and with the team's game," Vinicius said afterwards.

"I'm in very good physical shape after the work I've done [at home].

"I worked a lot to get to this moment.

"It's like a World Cup. You have to play well and be focused every three days."

Vinicius showed great composure to finish the chance that arrived to him from Luka Modric's pass.

"I'm trying to improve in every aspect," he said about his finishing.

"My teammates and Zizou [Zinedine Zidane] are helping me a lot.

"I want to improve in order to help [the team]."

Vinicius also seemed to like playing alongside Eden Hazard as the pair were both given a rare start together.

"It's very easy to play with him and we connected a lot on the left," the Brazilian said about his teammate.

"It's the first time we've played together and if Zidane wants to play us both, well we're there."
