Quotes: Norway-Thailand

Even Pellerud, Norway coach The first game of the tournament is always nerve-wracking. We are happy to have three points, but we have to improve aspects of our play against other teams. We're ready for the game against Germany on Thursday. Congratulations to Thailand on reaching the World Cup for the first time, that is a good accomplishment and the Thai team presented themselves in a very nice way.

Nuengrutai Srathongvian, Thailand coach We met a very good team and learned how women's football at international level works. Getting the first goal would have given us a morale boost more than anything, because we were playing a superior team. Our players were not too worried or nervous , this is just a bit different than what we are used to - we have to develop our team more.
