Alex Meret praised Napoli teamwork and “humility” to earn a 1-1 draw away to Champions League holders Liverpool.
The goalkeeper barely had a save to make, conceding a Dejan Lovren header from a corner, although his one fumble did force Kalidou Koulibaly into a goal-line clearance.
“It was a very difficult night, they pushed for 90 minutes, but we showed great humility and played the game we needed to in the circumstances,” the shot-stopper told Sky Sport Italia.
“The only regret is that we made too many mistakes in possession and playing our way out from the back.
“We need to learn from this humility, spirit of sacrifice and team spirit, hoping to use that in our other games as well. We need a point now against Genk and hope to book our place in the Round of 16.”
