Bayern Munich star Robben full of pride after Barcelona thrashing

Bayern Munich ace Arjen Robben was full of pride after their stunning 4-0 semifinal win over Champions League opponents Barcelona.

Bayern took a giant stride towards a third final in four years after thrashing Barca 4-0 in tonight's semi-final first leg at the Allianz Arena, with a brace form Thomas Muller sandwiching goals from Robben and Mario Gomez.

Asked if he could believe what happened, Robben told ITV: "Not really...I think we knew we were able to give them good competition, I think everybody said before it was a 50-50 game.

"We can be very proud, this team (Barcelona) has dominated Europe over the last five years and if you beat them like this in such terrific way I think you can be proud.

"But on the other hand, let's be quiet, enjoy this evening but not any more, because there's still the second game to play and we have to be ready."

When asked if he had Wembley in his thoughts, the Holland international added on Sky Sports News: "No, no, no, but that's also the strength of this team, we keep focusing. There's always the next game. Let's stay concentrated, not talk too much and just play our football."
