Vinicius Junior

Vinicius Jr. scored against Zaragoza on knockout stage of Copa del Rey along with Varene, Vazquez and Benzema in 4-0 win.

“I am thrilled with the victory and I got a goal, which makes me feel really assured.

I scored following a great pass from James and I am so thankful to him. We tried it in training and today it resulted in a goal.

This was such an important win in the grand scheme of this season and it has boosted us”.

“Our concentration levels were the best element of a game we knew would be tough. We were extremely focused from the off to look for a goal in the first 15 minutes.

We got it and then everyone relaxes a bit. The variety of the goal scorers gives us real confidence going into Saturday’s clash with Atlético de Madrid because it’s a huge game.

I’m thrilled so many players got on the score sheet today”.

About his fellow Brazilian Marcelo on his 500:

“I hope he play many more as I want to play alongside him for longer. He is an idol for us here and in Brazil. i am so happy for him”.
