Joao Felix said beating your rivals is always special after Atletico Madrid humiliated Real Madrid 7-3 at the International Champions Cup.
Diego Costa starred with four goals as Atletico showed no mercy in Friday’s pre-season clash in New Jersey, where Diego Simeone’s men led 5-0 at half-time.
Joao Felix scored his first goal since arriving from Benfica in a blockbuster €126 million deal, and the Portuguese teenager also registered two assists in a dazzling display.
The 19-year-old revelled in the result, saying:
“It’s positive. Beating your rivals is always good and special.
“This win gives us confidence, but we will continue working like we’ve done until now.
“I want to score as many goals as possible so that we can reach our objectives.”
