The Valencia CF goalkeeper impressed again in the 2-2 draw against FC Barcelona
A series of fantastic saves at the Camp Nou, in the presence of Brazil coach 'Tite', will have done goalkeeper Neto Murara's chances of a recall for the national team no harm at all.
The VCF stopper kept out a series of FC Barcelona efforts, with a tip away of a Sergi Roberto cross and a parry of a Philipe Coutinho strike amongst his best saves in the game.
The feeling after the match
"Barça are tough opponents, so leaving here with a draw after having gone 0-2 up leaves a bitter taste in our mouths. It was an open game, but the point is going to help us in the league. We could have seen any kind of result today."
Keeping on going forward
"We showed that we had the possibility of wining at a tough ground like the Camp Nou, and we had chances. It was an open game and the team had the mentality of wanting to win. Competing as equals with FC Barcelona is the most important thing and it gives us confidence to continue like this. We have important games ahead and we showed that we wanted to win.
"In football we all need positive results so that things go well, but we have to highlight the positives from when things weren't going as we had hoped. The toughest times have helped us to overcome difficulties: We're a young group and this will help us further down the road."
