'Joao gave a great ball' - Bernardo marvels at 'amazing player' Cancelo after sublime Champions League assist25-Feb-2021, 05:49 am
Bernardo Silva couldn't believe the accuracy of Manchester City team-mate Joao Cancelo's first-half diagonal cross, which allowed him an easy header past Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer.
Silvarecognised it as much after the 2-0 Champions League victory, praising Cancelo as "an amazing player" with whom he shares a "good connection" from their developmental years together at Benfica.
"Usually I'm not so good with my head," Silva told BT Sport."I try to practice a lot. I think tonight I was lucky Joao Cancelo gave me a great ball.
"He's an amazing player. I played with him seven years at Benfica, we're the same generation. We have a good connection. He knows my timing and I know how good he is on these balls."
"We need to keep going because we're only halfway through," he said. "We have a map, a way of playing. Players get injured or cannot play and our style doesn't change.
"It was a good game for us, a good win. In this competition you can make a mistake and you're out. We tried to play simple football and not make mistakes. It's not finished yet but it's a good win."
