Mbaye Ndoye, Senegal (Association President):
"This is a very good draw for us. Gambia is right next door, so those matches will be very tense. Nothing is going to be easy but we're in with a good chance. Algeria are going through a bit of a hard time compared to their glorious past. But they have some excellent players and they will come back again."

George Weah, Liberia (former player):
"We witnessed an excellent, well-organised draw and, as such, we're hoping for a great World Cup. It's a difficult group, but I'm full of confidence as we have a delightful young side packed with quality that will allow us to scale the heights once more. The group isn't that difficult, so I expect us to go through and fight all the way with that aim in mind."
