Antoine Griezmann scores controversial penalty to defeat Leicester
Leicester left the Vicente Calderon stadium with a 1-0 defeat by Atletico Madrid but their chances of reaching the Champions League semi-finals were still intact on Wednesday.
Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa will be hoping to test some action when Leicester faces Atletico Madrid in the quarter-final of the Champions League on Wednesday.
"I think 1-0, we would have taken that before the game", said Shakespeare, who took over as boss of the Premier League champions in February following the sacking of Claudio Ranieri.
"You can really feel the good atmosphere in the team at the moment and we're feeling very confident after what we have done in our last few games. We know what we're about at the King Power Stadium and we know what we've got to do". You can't guess. It is a definite free-kick but outside the box. We know that the game will be very tough against a rival that is similar to us.
"As I was talking to them there was a charge".
Simeone praised his team's performance but also felt Leicester were probably satisfied to be taking a narrow deficit back home, where they overcame a first-leg defeat to dump out Sevilla in the previous round.
Shakespeare confirmed that captain and central defender Wes Morgan would not be able to play in Madrid due to the back injury which kept him out of the clash at Goodison.
Atletico made it to two Champions League finals in the last three seasons thanks to Diego Simeone's stout defense, one that allowed the team to successfully challenge the powerful attacks of teams such as Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
"He tries to win the long balls and he is also trying to go into the spaces between the lines and is also good in the air".
BT Sport highlight: Antoine Griezmann's penalty gives Atletico Madrid the slim lead over Leicester City heading into leg two.
"I've just told him in there that when we get back to the hotel, he's getting his kit on, going to the gym and making sure he does a session", he said. Luckily, Atletico have won more Champions League games this season than any other club, with six victories and one draw in eight games.
My problem is that they could have been facing into those games chasing a Top Four place themselves and not just performing for nuisance value. We must be about 80 yards away from the incident.
