Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar: Man Utd experience something special. De Gea...?

Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar says he'll treasure the experience of his game at Manchester United last night.

Svilar conceded twice in the Champions League defeat, including an attributed own goal.

"Mixed feelings, of course – a lot of emotions in twenty minutes but I think I couldn't do anything about it, it is luck," he told UEFA.com.

"There was nothing I could do about it but it's still an own goal.

"I enjoyed it a lot, I tried to enjoy the whole game, at my age it's something special. Great fans, great Benfica fans, they were so good. But a pity we couldn't take the three points."

On United keeper David de Gea, Svilar added: "We played really well, we had a lot of chances but an excellent [David] De Gea as well, so well done to him. As a team, we played really well and I hope we will continue like this in the league and the Champions League as well."
