Griezmann: Oblak is the best in the world

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has hailed goalkeeper Jan Oblak as the best in the world following his heroics in the Champions League against Bayer Leverkusen.

Oblak produced a number of fine stops – including a memorable triple save to deny Julian Brandt and Kevin Volland from scoring –  at the Vicente Calderon Stadium in their second-leg encounter on Tuesday night, which led to huge praise from his French international teammate.

"It's why we say he's the best goalkeeper in the world," Griezmann told reporters after the game.

"He proves it in every game and he did so again.

"We had some chances but we didn't have the luck. But the most important thing was to reach the quarter-finals and we're already  thinking about the next game," he said
