Liverpool's Emre Can: 'I'm proud to be a part of this team'
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can reflected on a magical night at Anfield, where the Reds improbably defeated Borussia Dortmund in their Europe League quarterfinal after being down 3-1 at the hour mark.
Jurgen Klopp's men were fueled by consecutive goals from Philippe Coutinho, Mamadou Sakho and an injury-time strike from Dejan Lovren to record a remarkable 4-3 win and advance to the semis of the competition 5-4 on aggregate.
Can, who provided the assist for Divock Origi's Liverpool opener just after half-time, watched the final 10 minutes after being replaced by Lucas late in the match. He was seen afterward with a boot on his foot.
Speaking to reporters afterward, the German international hailed the memorable the win.
"You don't experience an evening like that too often. I just can't take it in yet," Can said.
"Respect for every member of our team. It is unique. I am proud to be part of this team.
"We also didn't play that bad in the first half, every one of us believed we could get through in the second half. That is also the reason why we turned the game around."
