Gary Cahill admitted he and John Terry went through agony watching Chelsea's sensational Champions League semi-final triumph over Barcelona after both were forced to witness most of the game on television.
The former Bolton man was still reeling from the devastation of leaving the field with a hamstring injury on Tuesday night when he was joined by Terry, who inexplicably got himself sent off in the Blues' astonishing 2-2 second-leg draw at the Nou Camp.
Cahill said: "I was devastated that I had no more part to play in the game and, when I looked up and saw JT come through the door, I'll be honest, I probably feared the worst. But the lads were absolutely outstanding, the way they stuck together and ground out the result. It was amazing. Phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal."
