Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger felt his team restored their pride by beating AC Milan 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium as the Gunners bowed out of the Champions League.
Trailing 4-0 from what Wenger had labelled a "shocking performance" at the San Siro three weeks ago, it was always going to take something special to turn the tie around and progress to the quarter-finals.
Wenger said: "We restored a good performance tonight and we are disappointed because we touched qualification. We had the chances and we didn't do it, but we were very close."
