Joachim Low, Germany coach
We haven't got an easy group. Sweden and Ireland always do very well in qualifying. We’ve already played against Austria and Kazakhstan in EURO qualifying. It’s going to be tough, but it’s certainly doable for us.

Dietmar Constantini, Austria coach
Germany are undoubtedly the hot favourites for first place. On paper Sweden and Ireland ought to finish above us, but it’s not an impossible task.
 
Erik Hamren, Sweden coach
Republic of Ireland are going to be difficult to beat. I’m expecting a major battle against them. Germany are the undoubted favourites.
