“It was amazing! It’s a great night. I’m very happy for the team, for the performance, that we believed until the very end. Everyone deserves congratulations. I had two chances to score but I didn’t make the most of them,” the club’s official website quoted Neymar as saying.
“But in the second half, I helped to set up the two goals so I’m really happy and pleased. I hope this can spur on our team, and that we can carry on in the competition,” he added.
