do in the last match of the group stage.

"Gladbach are in an excellent period of form, in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League,"

Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

"If you are not a team, tactically, physically, in terms of character, you don't come here and win.

"We absolutely deserved to win and could've frankly avoided suffering quite so much towards the end. We beat the group leaders and we are alive. I thank the lads; they had the right spirit. When they have this desire to help each other out and be a real team, we cause problems for the opposition.

"What I ask of the lads is to increase their level of responsibility, each and every one, because if they all do that, then we can become an ambitious side.

"Performances like this prove the team is there, we are united, we're all working in the same direction and want to give our fans joy.

"Conceding that equaliser on the stroke of half-time against the run of play could've killed us. We analysed some situations during the break, as we made some mistakes towards half-time, but these lads needed my support at that moment. 

"I told them we had to keep going and rediscover the quality we had early in the game and that we'd be rewarded with the victory. I am glad that I was proved right, because when a coach talks and those things don't happen, you risk losing their trust!"
