Reaction
Jesús Velasco, Inter coach

We didn't have much time to prepare it, it went well, but it was difficult. Every time Higuita came out we were in danger, but in the second half we improved, we had to take risks to get
the ball and play our game. [Ricardinho] has a mindset and the character to do what he does. He does well, and sometimes he also goes wrong, but he asks for the ball and he takes responsibility at the key moments."
