We had legs of cotton in the first half, but we did what was needed in the second half.

It's hard to talk about ambition when you look at the nature of this game.

Fabien was in great form at the moment. His absence is a bitter blow for the team.

We still do not know if it's serious but he already had a strain in the same calf.

He felt a pain in his calf. We will know more about it tomorrow but it will also be hard for him to play against Lille (next Sunday).

We need to produce the perfect match in Russia. We have nothing to lose. It will be tough but there's 90 minutes left and in football everything is possible.

I always said that we had a team to target the top five.

Extraordinary! All the energy of our fans was inside them.

Bolton are certainly stronger than us physically but I think that we have better skills in the midfield.
