MATCH QUOTES

“We had our best period for the first 20 minutes, and I felt we should have capitalised at that time, but the second goal was the one that finally killed us. “The South Americans have always snapped up their chances and that has been the big difference. “The Juventus game is obviously going to be a very difficult one, but we are not afraid of it. We have got a realistic chance of winning the European Cup again." Tony Barton.
