Millwall FC shocked premier league defending champions, Leicester City in the FA Cup and Ranieri admits the 10-man team were better.
But the deficit only sought to inspire Millwall to the win with Cummings latching on to a knock-down from substitute Lee Gregory to coolly slot past Leicester goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler.
"It's odd because last season we won for this, being more determined than the opponent, playing with more heart than the opponent", he said.
"I want to speak again with them and say, hey, now we have to fight, every match". "I think this defeat could be good for us because, when you lose against a team who fights, you have to ask yourselves: 'Why did we lose?'"
Millwall played most of the second half with 10 men and won thanks to a 90th-minute goal. "We could also lose, but we'd fight every match".
The 38-year-old told BBC Radio London: "My achievement this year is promotion - that's what I want to be judged on".
"There was more pressure on Leicester". I thought the atmosphere was electric.
"When we went to 10 men it galvanised us. It was everything you would want from a Millwall team".
The League One side could face disciplinary action from the Football Association after home supporters ran on to the pitch after the 1-0 win over the Premier League champions and appeared to taunt visiting fans. The pitch was cleared after stewards were joined by police on horses and then a further line of officers carrying riot helmets.
In an exclusive interview with Jim White on talkSPORT, the Lions supremo said: "A few people tried to come on the pitch and the scene was one of huge celebration".
"What I will say is my players were excellent today and our fans were brilliant during the 90 minutes".
Sevilla sit second in La Liga and are unbeaten in three matches going into the first half of their knockout-round clash with the Foxes at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
