Valencia star expected better result against Schalke

Soldado sent Valencia in the lead, but a goal from Schalke striker Raul secured a draw for the Bundesliga side.

“We knew they [Schalke] were dangerous and had top-quality players,” Soldado told Eurosport.

“Someone like Raul knows exactly what he is doing at every moment of the match.

“We expected a better result, but we are an ambitious club and wanted to do much better.”
