Raúl Jiménez nets first Atlético Madrid goal in rout over Sevilla (VIDEO)


Raúl Jiménez has not enjoyed the easiest of starts to life since his big money switch to La Liga champions, Atlético Madrid in the summer but the 23-year-old centre forward finally ended his wait for his first goal. After expressing his support for Real Madrid previously, Jiménez was always facing a task to win over the Atléti fans, and as the time passed without a first goal, the pressure grew. Last night against Sevilla, Jiménez ended the drought with a diving header in the final minute of Madrid’s 4-0 win.

One goal in a match already won is a long way from proving himself in Spain but there will be a huge sense of relief for Jiménez after netting his first in Europe.

Jiménez told reporters after the match, “I am going to kill myself in every training session and every match to make a foothole in Atlético.” Of course, talk is cheap but if Jiménez applies this attitude and develops it will be great news for both Madrid and México.
