Guess faith wasn’t with SIMEONE this time; losing one of his key player right after the start of the match, taking the lead before half time, just a minute away from making history and then the painful conceding in injury time.
I have to admit that I was gutted too as after that it was all going in Real Madrid’s way and you know they rest they say is history.
However I won’t take anything away from Ángel di MARIA; whom had a splendid night as for the most part he was the best player on the field for Real. Therefore it was only fitting that if he didn’t score, he should at least have a say it one of Real’s goal scored during the night.
It was his trickery and defiant run, beating the likes of TIAGO and MIRANDA which lead to setting up Gareth BALE’s header to put Real in the lead in extra time. Based on his overall performance, it wasn’t a surprise to most of us that he was named as Man of the Match.
“It’s an amazing relief. I can’t believe what we have achieved this year,” SportYou reports the Argentina international as saying.
“We could have done the treble but we missed the League at the end. This team has a lot of balls and a lot to give yet.”
José SOSA who was on the bench, came in the 66th minute but had little impact for Atlético. As for SIMEONE, despite of this defeat; all I can say he has well exceeded everyone’s expectation.
With that said, on behalf of every one of us in Mundo….
VAMOS ANGEL, CAMPEÓN DE EUROPA & BEST PLAYER OF THE NIGHT!!!
