Frankfurt - FC Schalke 04 defender Benedikt Höwedes was lost for words following his side's enthralling 3-3 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday afternoon.

The Royal Blues skipper could not believe his team let a comfortable lead slip from their grasp, but Frankfurt's goalscoring hero Joselu was happy with his own - and his team-mates' - display at the Commerzbank Arena. bundesliga.com rounds up the post-match thoughts from Saturday's topsy-turvy encounter...

FC Schalke 04


: I'm really frustrated. How we've managed to throw away the match is beyong me. We were 2-0 ahead away from home and were in control of the game. Their first goal wasn't even a proper goalscoring chance.

: We can't be satisfied with a 3-3 draw. We should be been a lot more intelligent after going 2-0 up. We became sloppy in possession after going ahead - that's a killer for every team.

: Unfortunately, we often let in more goals after conceding the first. That mustn't happen and we have to continue to work on that.

Eintracht Frankfurt


I'm very happy. The team gave everything, but it's unfortunate we couldn't hold on a few more minutes for the win.
