Vinicius Junior hopes he has won the first of many Champions League titles after helping Real Madrid become European champions for a 14th time, defeating Liverpool 1-0.
Vinicius was the sole goalscorer in Saturday’s final in Paris, left with a simple tap-in after Luka Modric’s pass cut Liverpool open and released Federico Valverde to drill in a cross in the 59th minute.
Another victory clinched a double for Madrid after they claimed the LaLiga title with four games to spare in April.
This was special for Vinicius, though, as his breakthrough Champions League triumph, and he was struggling to come to terms with his achievement as he spoke to Movistar afterwards.
“Inexplicable. I have no idea what I have done today,” he said. “Now to celebrate and have a lot of fun. We have enjoyed what we have done, getting here and winning… there is nothing better than winning with this shirt.
“It was a dream for me. To have scored in the final is the best thing a player can have. It’s the first. I want to keep winning and keep making history here for a long time.”
