Paul Le Guen, Cameroon coach
What I think what we lacked was efficiency in front of goal. We had an enormous amount of very clear chances and we failed to put them away. We were clumsy with our finishing, but I feel that we gave everything we could tonight. We did what we could on the pitch. I have regrets after these two matches and that's understandable given the quality of the match we played tonight. Honestly, we came very close and we just didn't make it. We can have legitimate regrets but I take responsibility for everything.

Morten Olsen, Denmark coach
We didn't start well and we made a mistake that Cameroon pounced on. We demonstrated that we had desire and a good attitude. We made mistakes that we just can't repeat in this tournament and Cameroon could have punished us even more heavily than they did. It was hard for us to get the ball back and we'll have to improve on that in the future. We were surprised by their tactical set-up, but we reacted well. I was angry when I left the pitch because we made too many straightforward errors. We still need to improve.

Stephane Mbia, Cameroon defender
I don't understand. We started the match well, we conceded a goal due to a mistake and failed to keep our lead in the first half. We gave everything, but we can do better. It's hard to accept. In the first half, we had several chances that we didn't put away and we paid for that. To ensure that our people and the country as a whole continues to have a good impression of us, we quite simply have to try to win the next game.

Nicklas Bendtner, Denmark striker
Obviously I'm happy with the victory and to have contributed to it with a goal, but we can't be satisfied with the way we played. We're now in the position we'd hoped to be in, with our destiny in our own hands. We need to beat Japan to qualify, but if we were able to defeat a good team like Cameroon tonight, I don't see why we won't be able to beat the Japanese, even if we know it'll be difficult.
