Vinicius Junior scored a screamer in Los Blancos' 2-0 win over Osasuna on Wednesday and was seen falling on his knees before breaking into tears as his teammates surrounded him to celebrate.

"They were right (to whistle) because I wasn’t doing well," he said, as quoted by Marca.

"But finally, the goal I dreamt of came.

"I was excited because it was taking me a long time to be myself again and I haven't been as happy as last season.

"It was a complicated time in the game, but I've worked very hard for this moment."

The 19-year-old also revealed a chat he had with coach Zidane ahead of the game that saw him score his fourth goal of his Real Madrid career.

"Before the game, Zidane asked if I was going to score, and I told him 'yes'," he explained.

"And when I recieved the ball, the first thing that came to my mind was to shoot."
