Van Dijk told TV3: "We are disappointed, but we have to turn it into joy very quickly. It is a great achievement to advance to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

"Looking at the two matches, I think we deserve to move on, but Inter made it difficult for us.

"It is not easy to play against the Italian champions. We are just people and we are not the best team in the world all the time."
