Argentina-Germany: Quotes

Reinhold Yabo, Germany captain
Once again, we got an early goal and then everything went wrong. It's not a question of quality, but mentality. We made too many mistakes, we lost our concentration, and even though we pushed hard at the end, we couldn't manage an equaliser. Naturally, we're very disappointed but we can still qualify - we'll have to win against Honduras and hope other results go our way. As long as we're still mathematically in with a chance, our goal remains the same: we came here to win, and we're going to do everything in our power to do so.   

Jose Luis Brown, Argentina coach
It was our mistake that led to their opener, and that made things more difficult and forced us to change our tactics. In the first-half, we made mistakes but we didn't lose heart. I barely said anything to my players at half-time, I just asked them to play a more compact game. We're lucky to have very technically gifted players like Daniel Villalba, Sergio Araujo and Sebastian Gonzalez, who are very skilful in tight spaces. They made the difference, and once we'd got the lead we were able to hold onto it by remaining solid throughout. Now I have to talk with my staff to decide which players coud do with a rest before I announce my team for the final match.
