The Brazilian goalkeeper said: "It was not easy, we played with ten against a team that knows how to play well. We had a great showing at the back and did not deserve this result. They ran the ball well but did not make great opportunities.

"They scored a goal with a deflected shot and this has ruined all our work. The second goal, I was confused by the slip of Chivu. But I could still do better."

Julio Cesar also accused Fernando Torres of diving for Marco Materazzi's first yellow card.

"For the first foul, Torres threw himself to the ground, in the second intervention there was no doubt. Materazzi is sad, he did not say anything."
