Mubarak Wakaso hails Barca for historic feat
Spanish based Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso hailed Barcelona who completed the greatest Champions League comeback of all-time as they overcame a 4-0 first leg deficit with a 6-1 second leg win at the Camp Nou.
Wakaso, on loan at Granada, was full of praise for the La Liga champions, who needed a 95th minute goal by Sergi Roberto to claim a scarcely believable Champions League quarter-final berth at the expense of the French champions.
It had looked as though Edinson Cavani's away goal would prove pivotal after Barcelona had raced into a three-goal lead, but the hosts scored three times from the 88th minute onwards to complete the biggest turnaround ever seen in the competition.
