Speaking after the game, Bayern goalkeeper Neuerwas profuse in his praise of histeam-mate's strike.
"That was will and talent at the same time," Neuer said. "He did not stay on the ground and still chips the ball in.He's just a good player."
Bayern head coach Hansi Flick concurred with his goalkeeper on Kimmich, tellingZDF:“As long as I've known him, his mentality has been very special.He is well on his way to being one of those players who shapes this team and this club.
"I always look, when can I give him a break?But then you have to reckon with his anger, he always wants to be on the pitch."
Meanwhile, Haaland expressed his disappointment at the result and also at failing to add another goal to his tally on the evening.
"It hurts that we lost," the striker said."We could have won the game, it's a bad feeling because we were close.I should have scored another goal."
