Barcelona midfielder Andrés Iniesta praises Diego strike
Andrés Iniesta has praised the quality of Diego’s goal in Atlético Madrid’s 1-1 with Barcelona on Tuesday.
The Brazilian midfielder, who had been brought on to replace the injured Diego Costa, scored with a wonderful hit from distance to secure a vital away and earn Iniesta’s adulation.
“Diego's goal? That was a wonderful strike, from such distance, and there is very little you can do when someone hits it that well,” he told UEFA.com.
“I would say that the reaction we produced in order to get the draw is what is most important to us. As soon as we equalised, we went after the second goal to try and win it in the remaining minutes.”
