Abdullahi Isa, Nigeria captain
(Today’s result) is one of those things that happens sometimes. That’s football. Today, I don’t think that we did well at all. We tried to fight back, but we were always in a hurry because we knew we were under pressure. Now, we are only thinking about how to win tomorrow. We will see Bahrain play Brazil today and I am confident of our chances.
Dejan Stankovic, Switzerland player
Beach soccer is very popular in Switzerland. We have two national leagues, an A league and a B league. We trained for two months for this tournament and we are ready. We are looking forward to what’s next and are ready for the quarter-finals. Dubai is a wonderful, big city. We are having fun here. Tomorrow against Brazil – that’s a new game. And we will win. If we play like today, we have a good chance.
