Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs has denied that the club have completed a deal for Arsenal target Luiz Gustavo.
Goal exclusively revealed on Monday that the Gunners were looking to seal a £17 million deal for the out-of-favour Bayern midfielder as Arsene Wenger looks to add to the solitary summer arrival of Yaya Sanogo.
“From the way we played in the second half, the result is unfair because we created so many chances,” Bento told RTP.
“I am very pleased with the team’s display and the continuity of the work done during the previous season.
“In the first half we came under pressure, but we tried to react and bounced back.”
Despite Bento’s disappointment, it turned out to be a fruitful evening for Portugal as Northern Ireland beat World Cup qualification rivals Russia 1-0, leaving Bento’s men two points clear at the top of Group F, with Russia having a game in hand.
