Copenhagen keeper Karl-Johan Johnsson deflects Man Utd heroics: Team effort

FC Copenhagen goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson was eager to deflect praise to his teammates after their Europa League defeat to Manchester United.

United scraped into the semifinals via a questionable penalty converted by Bruno Fernandes.

Johnsson was outstanding on the night and said afterwards: "Of course we would have liked to have moved on, but that's how it is.

"I am happy for my efforts and for the efforts of the team. The whole team delivered a huge effort, so it is not just me who should be praised.

"I had a good feeling, so it was fine. I got stuck into the fight and made several important saves."
