Anyone who didn't see the game would think it was a mad result.

We had a bad day and we've still got another game to try and react. I think we can pull off a comeback at our stadium. We're sure to improve because today nothing went right.

But no one needs to say anything to us because we are also very upset about it. Our luck will change though, we just had a tremendous amount of bad luck.

It means we can play with our batteries fully charged. We have rested all (northern) summer, worked well in pre-season and now we have all our strength to play at full pace.

We are going to play an important game and the moment of truth has arrived. Everyone knows just what is at stake and nobody should doubt that we are going o give it everything.

We need to forget about the Barcelona game as quickly as possible. We can't wait for Lyon to arrive so we can win and give our supporters something to cheer.

In the second half we were better and I am happy also with my own performance. We can now build from here.

I thank Manchester for their interest but I want to remain here.

Portugal were always better than us. We're not happy. It was the most important game and we didn't rise to the occasion. Portugal were always superior.
