Oscar insists: Chelsea did not lack effort in Corinthians loss
The European champions were unable to clinch the crown against the Copa Libertadores winners with Oscar making it clear that the Southwest Londoners were determined to taste success prior to the deciding fixture.
"I didn't think we lacked effort, this happens," said Oscar after Paolo Guerrero netted the only goal of the game with just over 20 minutes remaining in Yokohama.
"The whole of the Chelsea team need to learn how to play decisive games like this.
"It was a good game, we just didn't create as much as usual, Cassio made some great saves and Corinthians scored when they had the chance."
