"It's a dream come true and I couldn't be happier," said the forward.
Castilla striker Cristo will never forget October 31, 2018. He fulfilled the dream of making his debut for the Real Madrid first team and did so scoring the final goal for the Whites at the Municipal Álvarez Claro (0-4), in the first leg of the round of 32 in the Copa del Rey.
The man from the Canary Islands, who had replaced Asensio in the 83rd minute, nodded home in the 92nd minute after a good cross from Odriozola from the by-line: "It's a dream come true. I’ve worked hard to get here and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to the coach and the club for the opportunity. The coach has taken the move to the first team in his stride and I hope that everything continues to go like today. The chat was short, he told me not to overdo it on the ball, to play simple, enjoy it and score a goal. And I couldn’t hope for a better start for Real Madrid".

Dressing room
“It’s amazing to be so close to these players, but once the ball starts rolling and you’re on the pitch, you don’t think about that. You enjoy it and that’s it Vinicius is great for us and he’ll only get better. He’s young and he’s got real potential. It’s not just about the future though, it’s the present too and he looks a real find. I don’t think a dressing room as great as this one is too badly effected by defeats and the dynamic can change in the blink of an eye”.
