Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente scored his first ever goal for Los Blancos in superb style, Llorente’s spectacular strike came in the Club World Cup final vs Al Ain.
Llorente scored a wonderful volley from outside the box in the 59th minute of the matchup, Real Madrid’s corner was cleared into the path of the Spain Under-21 international who drilled the ball into the back of the net with a perfectly timed first-time effort.
Llorente was only given the chance to impress Madrid boss Santiago Solari after Brazilian anchor-man Casemiro was sidelined with an injury and the 23-year-old has come on leaps and bounds since being given the opportunity to play first-team football.
Check out Llorente’s goal below:

This could be the start of something exciting for Los Blancos. Llorente quite literally has Madrid in his blood and the youngster is doing his best to continue his family’s legacy at the Bernabeu.
Marcos’ father – Paco, enjoyed a 7-year spell with Los Blancos.
Fans may not be aware that Llorente is also the great-nephew of Francisco Gento. Gento is one of Los Blancos’ greatest players of all time.
In Madrid period of dominance during the mid 50s to mid 60s, Gento lifted the European Cup with Madrid a record six times.
