Quotes

Jean Yves Labaze (HAI), Haiti coach
"We're very proud because we produced some great football and we're still in with a chance of qualifying. We played to win and we almost did just that, but on the other hand we're happy to come away with a point because the French missed a penalty in the last minute. When you get a present like that, you have to be grateful. Thanks to this point, we're still in the race, even if it's going to be tough against Nigeria in our third match."
