Odegaard Explains Arsenal's Error Against Sporting Lisbon

Arsenal was eliminated from the Europa League after Sporting Lisbon eliminated them in the round of 16. After 120 minutes of play, there was a 1-1 draw, and the Gunners lost on penalties.

After the game, Arsenal captain and midfielder Martin Odegaard reveals the mistake the Gunners made against the Portuguese side.

Martin Odegaard, an Arsenal player, told BT Sport that while there were times during the game when he thought his team contributed enough, overall, they weren't performing at their best. We did not perform at our peak level. In the end, the game was close and could have gone either way.

"They are a good team; we knew that; we were prepared." It was more about us today; we didn’t play the way we normally do with the same energy we normally do. Now we have to look forward.

"We must keep in mind that the season has been fantastic; losing this competition is a huge setback." But right now, all we can do is anticipate the season. When we win, we all win. It is irrelevant. Everyone is thrilled when we win, but when we lose, we have to pick ourselves up. Together, we succeed and fail.
