Tottenham goalkeeper Radek Cerny admitted to feeling 'hurt' after his team let slip a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 at Chelsea in the FA Cup on Sunday.
Spurs led 3-1 with 20 minutes to go at Stamford Bridge after strikes from Dimitar Berbatov and Hossam Ghaly added to an own goal from Michael Essien.
But Frank Lampard's second goal of the game and Salomon Kalou's 86th minute volley rescued a replay for The Blues.
Cerny, who started the match in place of the injured Paul Robinson, claims he had little chance with any of the goals his side conceded but that has done little to soften his disappointment.
"I am so sorry not to have won," Cerny, on loan at White Hart Lane from Slavia Prague, told Czech newspaper Sport.
"To draw a match away to Chelsea is a precious result but this time it hurts.
"We would have been happy to get this result before the game, but now I am disappointed. To lead 3-1 at half-time and still not to win, it is a great pity.
"I am very sorry for this, though the match was a great experience for me that I will remember for my entire life.
"The FA Cup is a very popular competition. The stadium was full, it was beautiful weather, superb. This is an experience to remember forever, and I think the game was fantastic."
