Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane didn't hide his disappointment after Tuesday's 2-2 draw in the UEFA Champions League against Borussia Dortmund, telling reporters he was "pissed off" after the final whistle.
That goal appeared to have knocked Dortmund's spirit but the home side refused to give up and Schurrle fired in an unstoppable effort with just three minutes remaining to claim a point.
The result has Dortmund sitting equal first in their group with Madrid having both recorded four points from their two matches, while Sporting Lisbon are just one behind having beaten Legia Warsaw 2-0 tonight.
"We started very well and found enough space for our game, but in the last third, we took the wrong decisions", said the winger.
"The players played a great match".
"We're more sad than happy because we were so close to winning at a very hard ground".
"I've often played in this stadium, it was always hard".
"At the end of the day it's not a bad result, but when you play like this, you feel broken". Taking a glance at the screen, Ronaldo quickly became aware that the linesman was right to disallow his goal. "It doesn't matter, and you carry on playing". "But they're intelligent and we're going to rest up, prepare the next match and turn this around".
Dortmund's first equalizer came after Raphael Guerreiro's free kick from 25 meters was punched out by Keylor Navas.
Real Madrid have lost their last three away games against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, their longest current losing streak on the road in the competition against an opponent. "He's got the character to play at any stadium and he put in a good performance".
Navas, coming back from three months out after heel surgery, looked unlucky to concede the goal but made a string of fine saves. I think it will end soon.
Against Las Palmas we lacked concentration. From minute one to 90 we did our jobs.
"We struggled a bit in the first half with their pressure, but that's normal at this ground. I took the decision in the best (interests) of the player and that's not going to change anything", said the former French worldwide.
