“It is only normal that we want to reach the final now. That's clear. When we are there then we can talk again.”

With two minutes of normal time remaining, United States midfielder Tyler Adams snatched victory with a deflected shot from outside the box after Atletico had cancelled out the German's lead.

“You try to train for things but my players did take very good decisions tonight throughout the game,” Nagelsmann said.

Leipzig, which knocked out Tottenham Hotspur in the last 16, faces the French champion on Aug 18.

“It was the team that eliminated Tottenham and now Atletico. It is a team sport and the boys were outstanding. We were the better team,” said Nagelsmann, at 33 the youngest coach to reach the last four of the competition.

“In the first half we were not very good in the final third of the pitch. But this young team showed no nerves,” he said.

“Now to recharge. The match that awaits us is another big game, an even bigger one. So the batteries recharge a bit faster.”
