ROME, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng insisted Milan "played well and proved we are strong" following their loss to Barcelona at a Champions League game at home on Wednesday.

"Tonight we played well and proved we are strong when we play with concentration," Boateng was quoted by football-italia.net as saying.

"Barcelona are a great team, the best in the world, but you could see this evening we put in a fine performance and were unlucky.

"In any case, the important thing is that we have qualified for the last 16."

The Ghanaian scored a sensational solo effort to make it 2-2 before the Xavi Hernandez winner.

"I just thought about shooting," he said.
