Iker Casillas has admitted he may have played the final Champions League game of his career in Porto's 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Tuesday. The Portuguese side held the Reds to a draw at Anfield, sealing their elimination from Europe after having lost the first leg 5-0. Casillas, 36, will be a free agent at the end of the season, meaning he may not get another chance to win a fourth Champions League crown in his career.

However, in shutting Liverpool, Casillas feels he can be proud of his potentially final European game. "If this was my Champions League farewell, it hasn't been a bad night at all — at this fantastic stadium, keeping a clean sheet... but no one knows what the future holds. If I look back, I can feel proud of the things I've won, of everything I have achieved. It's been many years in the Champions League and it's great to come to a stadium like this and be given such a warm reception."
