"Honduras, Jamaica and Canada are the most demanding opponents, but we just have to get through, we have to qualify for the World Cup. And over and above thinking about those rival teams, we have to focus on ironing out a lot of our own flaws." Mexico midfielder Carlos Salcido.

"We have to prepare twice as well because the next stage is more difficult. We'll be facing teams that are stronger and with a wealth of experience, so we mustn't get carried away." Honduras national coach Reinaldo Rueda.

"I'm very excited about qualifying and I'm anxious to start playing right away. We've been in really good form and in order to be the best we have to be able to beat the best." Canada forward Dwayne DeRosario.

"We played well to get this far but we'll have to do a lot better in the second round. We're in a very difficult group but we've got a lot of self-belief and I'm sure we will be able to pick up good results." Jamaica striker Deon Burton.
