Defeat in a penalty shoot-out is always a bitter pill to swallow.

The lottery of entering into such a farcical situation seems to negate all the effort and hard work that was put in during those hectic 120 minutes.

Everyone knows that luck plays an important part in these situations and that even the hardiest of professionals can succumb to the pressure, even more so when, as last night, the shoot-out occurred in front of the opposition home end.

But, walking away from such a defeat it`s always good to seek some kind of comfort in an outstanding performance put in by an individual, last night that performance came from Kerim Frei.

The performance given by this young man, in taking the fight to Chelsea, was one to be admired and at times it looked as if the best Chelsea (and England) has to offer, in John Terry, couldn`t quite handle him.

Before the season started many column inches were written about Jol`s search for a striker to complement Zamora, Dembele and Johnson. Sa and the expensive Ruiz were brought in, but something tells me that Frei, given half a chance, could turn out to be something really special.
