Ahead of tonight's clash with Sporting Lisbon, Megson said: "I knew the quality of Bayern's team, and we had 10 or 11 injuries, but I also knew already we had an honest bunch who wouldn't short-change the fans.
"Some of the things we're good at, they couldn't handle. We play a good side every week, don't forget. The whole experience was new for a lot of people, not just me, and sometimes the occasion lifts people.
"I was amused that Ottmar Hitzfeld was criticised for taking Franck Ribery off - he brought on Luca Toni! They didn't beat us because we were organised, worked hard and we've some seriously good players."
