Kari Aalvik Grimsbø, goalkeeper of Győr:

” We had two very different halftimes here, with ups and downs, but we have shown again our strength as a team and how we can fight for each other. It’s unbelievable that we did it again. It feels crazy.

” In the extra times, we changed with Éva Kiss. I felt that she is fresher both mentally and physically so she could help more in the decisive minutes. So I said that she has to do it, because my second half and the first extra time was not so brilliant.

Éva Kiss, goalkeeper of Győr:

” We talked with Kari that we should replace her and I should go in for the last five minutes. Ambros Martin said that is our decision, so we did it.

“I feel that I could help the team. That last save was more impulsive and I stopped the ball with my hand. It was the last moment of the game. I win the CL for the second time. Amazing feeling, I am happy.
