"It's always difficult to come back from 2-0. Tonight was a perfect and magical night for me. I'm pleased with the three goals, but the most important thing is the team, and we played with intensity. Football is full of surprises. In Europe the teams are increasingly stronger and it's always difficult to win the games. We did very well and we deserved to get through".
His own performance
"It wasn't my best performance, I've produced better. Just because I scored three goals doesn't make it my best. I always give of my best, those who work with me know that, and the stats don't lie. If you work hard, the goals and assists follow. I always work hard, I'm a great professional and this just shows that God helps those who work hard".
What Keylor Navas said to him before the free-kick
"He knows how I can hit the ball on free-kicks and he told me to hit it slowly and that's what I did".
"It's difficult to go for either Atlético or Barcelona. Atlético defend better and Barcelona are amongst the best in Europe. The two teams are tough opposition. I would like us to get Benfica, a Portuguese side and it would also mean I'd get the chance to go there".
