"It was a very tough game against a very strong side, but I am very pleased that we got what we wanted: a victory in our first match. It was so important and now we can be calmer going into our next match. We were considered outsiders but we are now in a good position to reach the second round," Amadou Diop, Senegal coach.

"Individually and collectively, we were very poor. Our defence was particularly poor. I was impressed by the reaction of the players to going 3-0 down, but I would have preferred them to act rather than react. We're still optimistic," Eric Cantona, France coach.
