“The truth is it was perfect. We played a great game from start to finish. We started the game spectacularly against a rival who can make it difficult for you. The key was to keep possession and to press well. We had some tough moments in the second half, but I am very proud of what the players did. Playing with authority was the key today.” Zidane said
In addition, Zidane also acknowledge Ronaldo and Bale, who were back now on the score sheet after both players competency had been questioned.
“I am happy for Cristiano again, as there is always talk of problems when he doesn’t score. I am also happy for Gareth as the goal will be very good for him. Today we saw Gareth in very good form, playing like that and scoring too. In every game we see he is returning to how he was before. He was up front in our shape, but naturally drifted to the left, where he can be lethal.” The French international coach added
