Cork City strike Karl Sheppard says that his side are disappointed after her side's loss in Poland as he felt they had chances.

John Caulfield's side were knocked out of the Champions League after a 3-0 defeat to Legia Warsaw in the second leg of their first-round qualifier in Warsaw.

"We are coming away very disappointed," Sheppard told RTÉ Sport.

"We had numerous chances over both legs, I squandered a good one myself, I'm proud of the boys, we put in a good effort but you can see they are a great team, we came away a bit disappointed knowing there were chances there for us."

City were trailing 1-0 after the first leg and had a stiff challenge to face in the Polish Army Stadium. Sheppard came close to finding the net but the ball drifted just wide of the far top left corner. By that stage City had fallen behind and need to score twice without reply to progress.

"Ya I thought it was in and I was saying to the boys I thought it was starting to peel away, and it just went over, look we put in a good effort and made a lot of chances we just couldn’t take them, that’s the difference really."

Legia Warsaw's goal came after a mistake from their goalkeeper, Peter Cherrie. Mateusz Wiesteska’s long ball over the top was hooked back across the face of goal and over the head of Cherrie.Jose Kante was on hand to finish.

"I thought we were in a good way, game plan was going good, it was just a slip up in concentration. We knew that they would be testing us that’s what good teams do but in second half they deserved to be winners."
