‘To come here, work so hard to get over the line – it’s a big moment. The fans deserve it. It is pretty special.

‘We’ve had so many games in such a short space of time, but that is what it’s all about. Digging in. To win it on penalties again – a lot of credit has to go to the boys.

‘We have to give everything. Some of the talent we’ve got in the dressing room is incredible. We need to just keep going.

‘We’ve got to recover quickly – we have to be ready for that. The Wolves – then Madrid. 3 big games left and hopefully we can win all three.’
