Eddy Etaeta, Tahiti coach
We share our group with New Caledonia, a team we know very well as we have already played them three times in 2011. Vanuatu is a team we know less about but I know they play a very offensive style of football. I think the groups are well balanced and we will have a very competitive team. We can count on our professional players, Marama Vahirua and Alvin Tehau, and will have players back from the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. Most of the team will have the experience of competing in the Pacific Games. To qualify for a World Cup is the dream for all football players and we hope to make it come true.

Christophe Coursimault, New Caledonia coach
This World Cup seems so far away on one level, yet it is much closer now with the draw having now taken place. We know our limits but it is a beautiful challenge to play this preliminary tournament in Fiji, and face New Zealand, who were a great Oceania representative during the last World Cup in South Africa.

Saby Natonga, Vanuatu coach
I am happy to know that we are in the same group with New Caledonia and Tahiti. They are both very good teams but we have enough time to prepare for our meetings with them next year.

Chris Williams, Tonga coach
It's certainly exciting to know what lies in wait for us now if we are in successful in Round One later this year. However we can't get too far ahead of ourselves and must concentrate on Samoa, American Samoa and the Cook Islands as we will certainly be going into that tournament as underdogs. For whichever team qualifies it will be a fantastic experience playing the likes of Tahiti, New Caledonia and Vanuatu, and we'll be doing everything in our power to ensure we can cause a few upsets in Samoa and earn the privilege to play in Round Two.
