NEWS | 03/11/2020 | Javier Vázquez"It's not every day you get your 100th goal and all the more so when you're a defender. We've picked up a vital win", explained the captain.
Win over Inter
"As long as we continue to surprise people, it's a good sign. We're pleased, it was a really tough game, there was a lot at stake. They're a very solid side, with a very clear playing style and they made the most of that, but we got a good result to pick up three really important points. The group was looking tough but tonight's win was vital".
“When the team wins, the players gain confidence. But we have to try not to be affected by it all and do what we do best, which is playing football. Today was like a final for us. Everything was at stake. It was a must-win game. When you see them equalise after you've worked so hard, you've got to make the extra effort once again and the team has done that. We went for it and it paid off. In the Champions League you have to take your chances or you'll be made to pay for it”.
“Football is getting more and more even and it's harder to defend against teams with so much talent and technical ability. We have to keep improving and we're working hard at that. We're trying to regain that defensive solidarity, but it's not easy. The others are suffering too and we'll make sure we keep improving”.
Toni Kroos whipped over the corner and Ramos nodded the ball home. This was how the Sevillian netted his 100th goal, which brings his tally for the season to three, following his efforts against Betis and Barcelona. His favourite victims are Sevilla (seven goals), followed by Atlético and Athletic (six apiece). The captain is the highest-scoring defender in Real Madrid and LaLiga history, but that isn't the only record to his name after the Spain defender became the most prolific defender in international football.
