“I was on the ground and didn't even see the ball, it just hit me. Never mind, we got the result and are in the semi-final. We could've killed it off earlier and rested a little more, but Bayer Leverkusen are a very strong side and caused us problems.
“Now we have proved ourselves as a team and want to reach the Final. Just as we respect everyone in the competition, they have to worry about us too."
