FC Midtjylland fullback Joel Andersson: We proved ourselves against Liverpool

FC Midtjylland fullback Joel Andersson admits there is frustration after their Champions League defeat to Liverpool.

FCM players are convinced they could've beaten the English champions on the night.

Andersson says, "I think it was a straight fight that could have gone both ways. We played well, so I'm very disappointed, but then we played against one of the best teams in the world.

"It's a bit hard, but I'm also proud of the team, the players, the club and our performance.

"We take everything with us. This is how we play almost all matches in the Super League, and it is in this way that we would play against Atalanta. It shows that we can play like this against pretty much any team.

"We succeeded with what we always talk a lot about - not getting so many chances against us and helping our goalkeeper all the time.

"Of course we lacked a little quality offensively, but it starts in the defensive, and the first half was really good and the same in the second half. They did not have many chances in the whole match."
