D. Subasic: "You have to take three points in the first game. Argentina are the side that I'm most wary of in this group, with the little guy Messi. But Croatia have a good team too, and hopefully we'll make it into the last 16."
R. Falcao: "I think it's an evenly matched group. All of the teams are strong. Poland have had a good qualifying campaign. Senegal and Japan are from different continents but are very strong. I hope Columbia get out of the group."
K. Glik: "All of the teams will be giving it everything. Hopefully Poland will get through and have a great World Cup."
R. Lopes: "People will say that Spain and Portugal are the group favourites, but I think we have an open and well-matched group. In football, every game is difficult. Everyone will want to beat Portgual, the reigning European champions. We'll give it everything we've got"
D. Sidibé: "We've avoided the really big nations in the group, but every country deserves to be at this World Cup. We'll give our maximum in the competition. We'll need to be consistent."
