“Unfortunately we are out,” the Spaniard said.

“We had quite a lot of control in the second half and we had big situations, we didn’t put them away and in those games you need to do that.

“I think the way we approached the game and the way we competed in the game was really good because it’s very tough to do that against this incredible team and we played face-to-face with them,” he said.
