The Brazil midfielder struck the late equaliser in the the 1-1 result – though many are claiming it was a fluke.
He said: “For sure, it was a shot – no doubt.
“Because some people ask, ‘you want to cross or you want to shoot?’
“I say I wanted to shoot. Too much quality.
“But I’m happy to score this beautiful goal. In this kind of game it’s important to score goals.
“So now we have to carry on and stay together in this moment because we want to win all the games.
“I always try to do my best, play my best football, try to score goals. Sometimes it’s difficult but always I try.
“I want to improve myself, game by game, help the team, and I have to continue in the same way.”
