Isco has reflected on Malaga’s Champions League Last 16 win over Porto on Wednesday evening, calling it ‘a dream for everyone here’.
The Anchovies are in the hat for Friday’s quarter-final draw after goals from the young forward and then substitute Roque Santa Cruz defeated Porto 2-0 on the night, 2-1 on aggregate.
“An achievement like this seemed impossible only a short time ago,” enthused Isco to UEFA’s official website after the game.
“It is a dream for everyone here. We came out of the blocks with a lot of intensity because that is what this tie demanded of us.
“We then settled into the match and showed what we were capable of.
“I think we deserved the win. We enjoyed ourselves and we played in such a way that our fans enjoyed the game too.
“The Champions League is the essence of football and we will continue to enjoy it no matter where it takes us next.”
