The 25-year-old admitted that he was surprised by the margin of victory, adding: “We didn't expect it but we were really motivated and that led us to the victory. The most important thing is to give all you have. The confidence and the attitude the team had was very good and in the second half, despite winning 2-0, we kept playing like that.”
