Phil Jagielka admits he felt 'numb' after his penalty heart-ache.

Jags was unfortunate as Fiorentina keeper Sebastian Frey pulled off a great save to win the penalty shootout for his side.

"It was his night," said Jagielka of Frey during an exclusive interview witrh evertonTV.
"Things just hit him. If he came out for a cross and he missed it, then somebody else will be there to clear it and obviously in the penalties he managed to guess right and get a hand on mine.

"I felt a little bit numb. I don’t think I took a particularly bad penalty, but you can’t say it was a good penalty unless it goes in.

"I’ll go home a little bit gutted at missing the penalty, but I’ll have to come back with my head held high on Friday."

Wednesday's experiences have left Jagielka and his teammates desperate for more European nights.

He added: "I think that the boys have had a little taste of it this year and I’m sure if we get in the Uefa Cup or the Champions League, we will go one step further than this year.

"The boys will pick themselves up now, we have a massive game on Sunday and hopefully we can consolidate our European push for next season."

This interview is available in full on evertonTV.

Kit HunwicksWednesday was an amazing performance across the board. To make a team of that quality look as ordinary as we did is testament to everyone associated with Everton. Don't worry about the pens. These things happen, it's been a great season so far. Lets look to Fulham and beyond. 4th place? Champions League! COYB

paul stocktonGreat Result on the night but it always seemed advantage them if they made it level after full time of playing , what a difference a few inches would have made in the case of Yaks attempt . It was like watching a different team to the week before , but it shows how good the team now is . Stay focused on the Premiership 4th and Bill K get Moyseys contract sorted !

Lee StanleyJags, You have been imense since you first started a game for the blues. Every challenge you go in for you win and clear the danger. I am a defender and it makes me so happy to see defending like that. Pick yourself up. Wednesday is now history. We need to concentrate on Fulham for Sunday's game and keep the push for a Champions League place going. Come on You BLUES!

Chris WilliamsonI watched the game last night with hope. At the end of the game, we could have won 8-0 with a bit of luck, but whatever the score, I was proud to be blue. That's what sport is about, it's good to win, it's good to be the best, but if you lose, then lose with endeavour, dignity and guts.

Thomas A Bennet JrHow could you ask for anything more ? Our boys played with such heart and desire.My best friend ( a Man U fan) , gave the Blues a great compliment, "they never stop, they play the whole match fron star to finish". I couldnt agree more. What a great year.

Phil RobersFrey made a great save, end of story!! Jags has been absolute quality for us since he has been given a run in the team. Once again Moyes has proven to be astute in the transfer market. Lets finish the season on a high now. 4th spot and a derby victory to boot should do the trick!!

Nick XenosLast night, we proved not only to ourselves but to the rest of the world that we are team to be reckoned with. Jags, don't worry about the penalty miss, penalties are a lottery. Going into the shoot out, I was contempt with whichever way it went because I knew that we had put in a brilliant performance. I also believe that this season in Europe has been just a dress rehearsal, a small appetiser for what's to come. This experience will only make us stronger and more confident for the next time round.

Robin ByrneI'm sure you feel like you've let people down Jags, but you havent - you've been playing a blinder since moving into central defence and had another great game last night. Their keeper, Frey, just had one of those games and made a brilliant save for your penalty. No-one gave us a chance of pulling back the 2 goal deficit but we did it, so lets move onto the league now and get 4th place.

Its unfortunate you guys missed the peno's that knocked us out in the end, but you at least had the balls to take them! Jags You especially had a brilliant game and didnt deserve your night to end like that!! Collectively the whole team has to take responsibility for our exit for perfomances last week in italy! But im sure they will as you all seem to have a good togetherness, team spirit . Its done with now, time to move on and look forward to clinching hopefully 4th if not 5th and another european adventure next season, and if its half as good as this seasons, i cant wait!!!
