And Walker took to Twitter after the match to issue a special thanks to Alves, and also hail the performance of his side.

"A professional performance tonight against one of the best teams in the world," he wrote. "It was a pleasure to share the same pitch as you @DaniAlvesD2 after watching and admiring you over the years!"
