Fletcher laments misses

shoot-out. But they only scored two penalties to go through and that's disappointing.

"At Old Trafford if it goes to penalty kicks and we only score one, that's disappointing, there's no denying it."

Fletcher couldn't even draw solace from his role as captain, marking his personal journey back to full fitness after almost a year out of the game.

"I'm beyond that now," he reflected. "I'm back playing and all the sentimental stuff is kind of gone now. That might sound a bit harsh but I'm trying to win football matches.

"It's a great moment to be captain, don't get me wrong, but it's disappointing because it means nothing now that we didn't get to the final. As I said, it's a nice moment but it's tainted a lot by not winning the match."
