Chelsea midfielder Ramires: We beat Benfica? Really?

Chelsea midfielder Ramires thought they had actually drawn 0-0 at Benfica this week!

Speaking with Portuguese TV, Ramires said a goalless draw meant any win in London and his side were through to the last four. Only then did the Brazilian discover his team had actually won the game in Lisbon.

When Salomon Kalou tapped in the only goal, in the 75th minute, Ramires had been writhing in agony having been fouled in the build up by Oscar Cardozo.

The stadium hushed as Chelsea celebrated and Ramires was treated on the touchline. By the time he returned to the pitch, the game had restarted.
