Eder Militao headed in a cross from Brazilian compatriot Marcelo to give Real the lead right at the end of the first half, but Alcoyano substitute Jose Solbes stabbed home following a corner to level for the hosts with 10 minutes remaining. The players have given everything, we have had chances to score the second goal and when you don't score it later in a foul, what happened to us happens: 1-1. We were playing a Segunda B side and we should have won, but it's not a disgrace.

"I'm the coach, it's my fault", he said.

The Real Madrid playmaker has started just five games for the Spanish giants this season after returning from a successful loan spell at Real Sociedad a year ago. Now we have to think that we are in the League and in the Champions League and that's it. Concentrate, things can be done. It can happen and it happens sometimes in a footballer's career and responsibility must be assumed.

'I can not comment about players that play for different clubs, ' he said. "Now we are not going to go insane and we are going to think and keep working ". It's another painful day today because we don't like losing - especially for the players, they want to win. "Whether my message gets through, you have to ask them, I can't answer that".

I bowled a bad spell in the fourth Test , Bumrah bhai told me not to focus on that and be prepared for the next spell. He had made his way into the side as spearhead Mohammed Shami got injured in the first Test at Adelaide.

Luka Jovic recently returned to Eintracht Frankfurt after a miserable 18 months under Zidane and in two games has scored as many goals as he did with Real, while Sergio Reguilon, Achraf Hakimi and James Rodriguez have also thrived since being let go.

Zidane made nine changes to the team that were beaten 2-1 by Athletic Bilbao in last week's Spanish Super Cup semi-final but was still able to field a strong starting 11 containing five Champions League winners. He has improved with each year and now, at the age of 22, has been identified as a player who can make an impact in the Premier League.

He fears for his position more now for the elimination: "Well, when you lose there are always things that are talked about ..." To focus because things can be done. I'm not anxious. The players have always tried to win and sometimes it works out differently.
