Juan Santisteban (ESP), Spain coach
"There are no easy or straightforward games; when it's 11 versus 11, whether there's a difference in quality or not, as long as teams fight and compete then the match will be tight. That's what happened today against Honduras, and though I'm happy to have won the game there are things we need to work on. They made life very difficult for us, but they will also make it tough for our other group rivals."
Miguel Escalante (HON), Honduras coach
"We played against quality opponents, a highly competitive side with big-name players. Unfortunately our lack of experience cost us and we made mistakes in the area of the field we'd worked hardest on: defence. We quickly changed things around and realised that we could go toe-to-toe with Spain, and that's enough for me. What did I make of Bojan? He's very elusive, he always knows where the goal is... He's a special talent."
Bojan Krkic (ESP), Spainforward
"There are always nerves and anxiety in opening games and that's what makes them tricky. Honduras were a tough team to play, but every team at this World Cup will be likewise. Fortunately we started the second half well and opened up a lead. In general terms, I think we did what we had to do."
Christian Martinez (HON), Honduras forward
"We didn't feel that our performance was far off that of Spain, but they've got some superb players and they gave them the edge. We have to keep working hard towards our aim of qualifying for the last sixteen. I think we can beat Argentina."
