"Special. Definitely special. We don't need to compare because we've never done that before," German said.

"We all know it would have been different. It could have been worse, for example, if we had never won the game.

"The boys gave us the opportunity to have a really special night. Before a lot of people fought for one team's Champions League before the game, I thought the other team was probably already on the beach.

"However these guys are very special. I can not be more proud. Throwing a show like this on the pitch tonight ... it's an open game but a good, good goal.

"Incredible goals, super football moments. I loved the game. We were able to enjoy it and enjoy the rest of the night."
