“How we caused them problems was outstanding and we controlled the game in the second half. It was bad defending for the first goal but 1-0 is not a big problem.

“Going out for the second half, I don’t know if we can play much better. But they had one moment against the crossbar and then Lionel Messi’s there for an easy goal, and the other one is a wonder strike. It was unsaveable.”

 “Football is like this. It’s about scoring goals, and they scored three and we scored none.
