Maxwel Cornet : « Je suis content du doublé mais j’aurais préféré la qualif’ »
Lyon's Man of the Match against Manchester City spoke to OLTV after Tuesday night's standout performance.

The team's performance

"We had a very good game tonight, collectively speaking. We showed a beautiful side of ourselves. We were solid defensively and created plenty of chances. It's a shame we couldn't win. We could have opened the score in the first half. We know that at this level you pay for small mistakes. City are a very big team... We also showed our weapons. We will now go for the qualification in Ukraine."

His two-goal haul

"For a striker, it's good to get as many chances in a match as I got tonight. It was important to stay in the game after missing my first chances. I stayed focused and was successful after that. The first goal? I saw the keeper off his line. I took my chance and it paid off. I'm happy with this goal. The second one? I tried to shoot between the keeper's legs."

His current mindset

"When the coach calls on me, I try to answer without any qualms. The only thing that counts for me is the pleasure of being on the pitch. I'm happy with the brace, but I'd prefer that we be qualified right now."
