It would have been more than possible. We didn’t play well in the first half. Dortmund played an excellent first half. Then we entered the game better and we scored the goal. And I think we were fully in the game afterwards.”

“We were the best team. But it took us a long time to be the best team today,” theadmission by Kroos in front of BVB’s statuesque first half.
