Atletico Madrid keeper Oblak: Every one of our players was Player of the Match

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak was delighted after their stunning Champions League win at Manchester United.

Atletico reach the quarterfinals 2-1 on aggregate thanks to Renan Lodi's winner at Old Trafford.

Oblak said, "For me, every one of our players was Player of the Match. It was a tough game in which everyone played their part. We know how hard it is to come here and win, so we're happy with the job.

"It's a great moment in what's been a tough season. We've improved of late, though, and we've won a really important game here tonight that will give us confidence going into the quarter-finals."

Oblak also reflected on his early save from Anthony Elanga.

He added: "If they'd have scored early on it would've been tough to come back into the game. Luckily, the ball hit my face – these things happen!"
