Isco delighted with debut goal

19 August 2013 13:56

Isco was proud to have produced a match-winning debut as his late goal sealed Real Madrid's 2-1 victory over Real Betis.

The 21-year-old headed a Marcelo cross past Stephan Andersen with four minutes to play to earn maximum points for Madrid on Sunday.

Jorge Molina had given the visitors the lead at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 14th minute, and although Karim Benzema equalised 12 minutes later, Carlo Ancelotti's side struggled to find a winning goal until Isco pounced.

The forward signed during the close-season from Malaga and he was elated after making a telling contribution in his first La Liga outing for his new club.

"I'm very happy with how it has turned out in the first game and (getting) the victory at the Bernabeu which is most important," he said. "I'm glad it (his first goal) was today to take the first three points for the team.

"It's a unique feeling, a pride to do so in the first game. Hopefully I will continue to do well and win many things with Real Madrid.

"We struggled defensively. Betis played a very good match.

"You have to keep working because as usual we have many things to improve on. Everyone is going to help each other, it is very important to be united to achieve our goals."

Isco scored 12 goals for Malaga last season and inspired Spain's Under-21 side to UEFA European Championship victory in June.
