Gerard Sergent, France coach
We played well but we can play better than we did today.  Our strength today was in the entire team, not individuals, but I think we must work hard on our weaknesses before our next match because Japan will be a much tougher test. I watched their match against USA and they are a very good team who play beautiful football.

Carlos Baez, Paraguay coach 
I'm very unhappy because we played really, really badly today. When I think of all the plans we made before the tournament, none of them worked.
