The Chilean winger has pointed out that Inter's early goal decided the tie...

CSKA Moscow had to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Inter, but an early goal from Dutch international Wesley Sneijder shattered CSKA's dreams of reaching the next round, much to the disappointment of Chilean winger Mark Gonzalez.

"Maybe we were a bit unlucky against Inter. But maybe we could have played more for the team; maybe we were too individual," Gonzalez was quoted as saying on uefa.com.

"We had a few chances but there is no point in saying that because we didn't score. The early goal was decisive. We never thought they would score so soon. The wall jumped and Sneijder was quite lucky.

"That was the most important point in allowing them to have confidence and play a different game. Another key moment was Odiah's dismissal in the second half after which it was very difficult for us.

"I'm disappointed because we didn't play our best game and bowed out of the competition. But we have to be happy at the same time because nobody thought we could reach this stage. From that point of view we are happy."
