Sandro Zanetti, Italy player
Unfortunately we were well below our best today and we lost. At least we're through and we can now start to think about the next phase. We weren't planning to come across Brazil so early but if you want to be champions of the world, you've got to beat all your opponents.
Jose Rotella, Paraguay player
We knew it was going to be that tough but thanks to God our hard work has been rewarded with a place in the next round. We always had our eyes on first place in the section and we're extremely happy to have achieved it. It doesn't matter who we get now. We're not scared of anyone.
