Madrid won Europe’s premier club competition for the 11th time in history with victory over city-rivals Atletico Madrid in the final at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan on Saturday evening.
Los Blancos took the lead after just 15 minutes when Spain international defender Sergio Ramos scored from close range.
Yannick Carrasco equalised for Atletico in the 79th minute, as the final went into extra time and eventually penalties.
Zinedine Zidane’s side won the penalty shootout 5-3 to clinch the Champions League for the second time in three years.
Oviedo, who can play as a left-back or as a left-midfielder, was following the match, and he was pleased for his Costa Rica international teammate and Madrid goalkeeper Navas.
“A just and deserved reward for someone who has never stopped to fulfil his dreams, thanks @NavasKeylor for inspiring us to dream!” wrote the Everton man on Twitter.
Navas has been on the books of Madrid since 2014, and he is one of the most underrated goalkeepers in the world.
The 29-year-old was arguably the best player for Los Blancos this past season, with his saves preventing the team from dropping points and losing games.
The former Levante goalkeeper kept 13 clean sheets in 34 La Liga matches for Madrid, making 2.47 saves per game and 3 saves per goal on average.
In 11 Champions League matches, Navas kept nine clean sheets, and made 2 saves per game and 7.33 saves per goal on average.
