“The team knew that tonight was an important game to leave with a win from here,” said Lucas Vázquez.
Real Madrid beat Cadiz at the Santiago Bernabéu in their last match before the World Cup. Rodrygo analyzed the victory: “It was a very important and difficult victory. We could have killed the game, but with the conceded goal we suffered at the end, it was difficult. The most important thing is the three points.”
“I think it’s not an incident with Fali, he did it intentionally. It’s a shame because he later told me he didn’t do anything. I don’t know why the VAR is there. It’s aggression that has no place in football.”.
“I hope we have a great World Cup. We want to be champions and I’m here to help my team. It’s always a pleasure to play Brazil and I hope it’s a great World Cup for us.”
Lucas Vázquez: ‘We were only winners’
“The team knew that tonight was an important game to come out of here with a win. I think from the beginning we wanted to win, to do our job. Maybe that goal at the end makes the difference. The game a little worse and makes that the result is less wide, but I think we were the fair winners.”
“From the beginning they tried to stop the game by wasting time. You have to respect the ways of the game. The team knew they had to score and Militão’s goal helped us before the second half. Then we scored the second goal and I think we deserved to score more goals.”
The first phase of the season
“I have in mind the feelings of the team. After the European Super Cup, the team did a very good job, with very good feelings in front of the goal, defending and attacking. Very solid work but the loss of points in the last games. it means we are second.”
