"The sensations are bad," he admitted. "This game we had to win, 100 per cent. We came from some bad results and we could not slip up. Now we have to start thinking about Tuesday's game.

"Their goalkeeper was the man of the match but what we have to do now is think and reflect about what we did wrong. We have to get goals to turn things around."

On the possbility of Julen Lopetegui being sacked, Ceballos said: "I don't think this will cost Lopetegui his job. We're with him to the death, but it's not my decision."
