Robben said: "I can't describe how I feel with words, but it's been terrible. Two or three times, you feel you have the cup in your hands but at the end you stand with nothing. It wasn't a good penalty.

I wanted to shoot the ball hard and high in the goal, but the ball didn't go high enough. It was a terrible penalty kick. After that, I still played well but you have to change your mindset at that point."
