Milito struck in the 2-1 victory, though Eto'o was criticised for his performance.
"Eto'o was not able to do well? No, I did not find that," insisted Milito.
"Samuel did today some important defensive work, which was crucial for the whole team, the defensive job he did helped us to win. He's great, made a lot of sacrifice and even if he did not score, we should appreciate his work for the team."
