Julio Carlos Gomez, Paraguay coach
Congratulations to France. And I have to congratulate my players too. It is the first time that we came to this World Cup and we have to look at the positives. When we look at the group table and across the tournament, we are in a better position than other, supposedly stronger countries. That gives us the strength to press on. We are leaving very proud. We have some great young players. In a couple of years you are going to see those players again in another World Cup.

Gilles Eyquem, France coach
In the next round, the team will be as well prepared as we were before this tournament. In truth, this group was bit easy for my players. We can do much better than this. Today was not as I expected and I am little bit worried about what I have seen. My players' concentration was lacking.
