KoreaRep vs Italy!!! It is little rivalry which I consider since that 2002 WC. I know National level there is a gap but in youth level, you never know. I am sure We wil bring good game and good for spectators as well. We have great offense and you will see how these youngster will run around with endurance and create chances.

Like it or not, that it is the Italian style of playing. According to many we always win for sheer luck! Perhaps God loves us!

Otmane Ibrir, Algeria coach
It was a difficult match for both sides and I think we did well in the first half. After the break we created some decent chances but unfortunately we didn't take them. Against a team like Italy you have to make the most of your chances if you want to get anything from the game and in the end we were punished. They grabbed a late winner which is typical of the Italians at the moment. In a game of this level you need to have a solid defence and not give the opposition any room at all. We learned an important lesson tonight, but we still have every chance of qualification from the group and we certainly don't hold any fears.
