Juventus striker Carlos Tevez insists that breaking his five-year European goal drought was not significant.
Juventus forward Carlos Tevez has downplayed the significance of ending his five-year European goal drought with a strike during his side's 2-1 defeat to Benfica.
The Argentine netted a vital away goal during the Europa League semi-final first leg, but is adamant that helping his side reach the final is his only concern.
"My goal was not important; that we're on course to qualify is," he told reporters. "We have a big chance of going through; qualification is open in the second leg."
Tevez cancelled out Ezequiel Garay's opener with 17 minutes of the match remaining, but Benfica's Lima found the net late on to give the Portuguese side a slender advantage.
