Amadou Diop,Senegalcoach
We're here to learn, as simple as that. Before the tournament began, we never thought that we would get this far. We haven't become favourites overnight though. We're still the surprise package and we're enjoying every moment of it.

Giancarlo Magrini,Italycoach
It's difficult to believe that Japan will beat Uruguay, but it's by no means impossible so the dream is alive for another couple of hours. Fitness was the key today and Senegal were stronger than we were in that respect.

Gomis Mbengue,Senegalplayer
Three victories in as many matches proves that we're here to win. We're going to go for it right up to the end and why not actually win the whole thing? We are really proud that we are through to the quarter-finals since it creates a good impression of both our football and our country.

Roberto Pasquali,Italyplayer
We didn't concentrate enough and we weren't on our guard. Personally, I feel really bad because I made a mistake in the last minute that set them up for the winning goal. So now we're all Japan fans!
