Grana, Italy player
In this match, I think our use of dead-ball situations made the difference. That said, we're about much more than just that. We took an important step today, but we haven't qualified yet. Now we need to maintain our focus and think about Paraguay. We're a very united and strong group, but one with its feet on the ground. I'm convinced we'll continue to grow as the tournament progresses.

Israel, Portugal player
Italy were fortunate. We were playing the better football and had more scoring chances, but they were more effective from dead-ball situations. Unfortunately, by the time we pulled a goal back it was too late to affect the result. We're not worried, however, as our fate is still in our own hands.
