The Gunners midfielder was proud of his team-mates' defensive efforts but concedes the second goal may well have killed the tie against Bayern MunichArsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has praised his team-mates' defensive work against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday, but was left frustrated by the Bavarians' second goal.

Goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller saw Bayern home - the latter scoring in the dying minutes - but Flamini was still proud of the north Londoners' display as they attempted to shut out Pep Guardiola's side with 10 men.
He told the club's official website: "I'm very proud of the way we defended especially in the second half. We conceded the penalty and of course playing 10 against 11 it was more difficult.
"I'm disappointed because I think 1-0 would have been great for us because we could go over there and try to score the goal. Now we are 2-0 down it will be difficult but as footballers we have to learn.
"But I am proud of the team and the way everyone worked hard today."
