March 1, 2020 is a night that Vinicius Junior will never forget.
The Brazilian was the star in El Clasico, scoring the opener as Real Madrid beat Barcelona 2-0 to go top of LaLiga Santander.
His celebration showed his happiness, and he kissed the Real Madrid crest an uncountable number of times.
Until that 71st minute, the game was just more of the same for the Brazilian
He looked lively but also lacking, until that strike deflected off of Gerard Pique and flew in at Marc-Andre ter Stegen‘s near post, giving Vinicius the goal he has dreamt of for so long.
The teenager so often leaves the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in despair with his failings, but the fans’ love for him has always stayed true.
He causes havoc for opposing teams and can leave defenders on the ground.
He never gives up, never hides and always gives his all.
Vinicius delivered a huge moment for Madrid when they needed it most, at a time when titles are decided and lost.
It hasn’t been an easy season for him so far and he’s regularly had to watch on from the stands.
Debates around him will continue, but at 19 years old he has already achieved something that he’ll remember long after his career ends.
The Bernabeu love Vinicius. And little by little Zidane is starting to as well.
