“Running out at the Bernabéu with the fans chanting my name is a moment I always dreamed of”, said the Brazilian.
Rodrygo Goes made his official debut for Real Madrid in the win against Osasuna on LaLiga matchday six. The striker came on for Vinicius Jr. after 71 minutes and as soon as he stepped out on to the Santiago Bernabéu pitch he scored Real Madrid’s second goal, sealing the third consecutive win for Zidane’s side in the league.
At the end of the match, Rodrygo spoke to the media: “I’ve always had a bit of luck on debuts and I’m happy about that. Today I’m very happy to get on and to score and be able to help the team. I’d like to thank my family and teammates, who talk to me every day, give me a lot of confidence. I’ve already said that whenever I score in the Real Madrid jersey its emotional”.

Goalscoring debut
"I don't want any comparisons with Ronaldo [Nazário] being made because he's one of the game's all-time best and one of my country's best. As for the goal… I controlled it well and knew that from there on in things would work out. I have to always show that I'm capable of playing here".

Zidane's faith
"The gaffer knows what he's doing and he's been talking to me every day to tell me to keep working hard. I'm at Real Madrid and I don't care whether I play for Castilla, under Raúl, or for the first team. Madrid are always going to have great players, so all of this prestige is to be expected".

"I'm so happy. Zidane transmit a real calmness and a lot of trust and I think that's why things went so well. I'm speechless, I've been dreaming of this moment since I joined Real Madrid and running out at the Bernabéu with the fans chanting my name… I'm so happy".
