Vinicius sends classy message to James after Real Madrid knocked out Chelsea
Following Real Madrid's Champions League quarter-final victory over Chelsea on Tuesday night, Vinicius Junior delivered a beautiful message to Reece James.
Real Madrid beat Chelsea 5-4 on aggregate to go to the Champions League quarter-finals.
Real Madrid won the first leg 3-1 at Stamford Bridge last week, while Chelsea won the second game 3-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger, and Timo Werner scored to put Thomas Tuchel's side in the semi-finals.
However, a late goal from Rodrygo forced extra time, where Karim Benzema scored the game-winning goal to send the LaLiga leaders through to the next round on a 5-4 aggregate score.
During the encounter, James did an impressive job of restricting Vinicius until the Brazilian was finally able to set up Benzema for the winning goal.
Vinicius took to social media on Wednesday to congratulate James on his performance after the Chelsea star had thanked Blues fans for their support.
“A game full of emotions. We gave everything yesterday. Sometimes in life, everything just isn’t enough, "James tweeted on Twitter.
“Thank you for all of your support!”
Vinicius replied, “Great game, bro. Good luck. ”
Meanwhile, Vinicius was not the only Real Madrid player to acknowledge James’ efforts in the match.
After the game, Benzema rushed to ask James for his shirt as the England star was heading down the tunnel.
