    • QUOTES (3)

      • Netherlands Coach Bert van Marwijk: The first match at a World Cup is the most important, and we're really happy to have won, as it was a difficult and hard-fought game. The Danes are very strong defensively. The final period of the first half was the worst for us, but when things aren't working you have to be patient, and we did that well. Scoring just a minute after the restart was perfect. Then the Danes had to come out and attack, which gave us more space. From then on we controlled the game and hardly gave them anything. By the end we had shown everyone that we can play good football, and we could easily have scored more goals.

      • Denmark Coach Morten Olsen: To start with the game went according to plan, but then we let in an unbelievable goal. That settled the game. But for that goal we would have got at least a point. Nicklas Bendtner really shouldn't have been playing. I wasn't playing mind games over the past week [when I said he probably wouldn't play], it was a real risk. But I simply didn't have any other choice as our forwards have so many injuries.

      • Netherlands Midfielder Mark van Bommel: The conditions here were extremely difficult and the pitch was very hard. The Danes were very strong and in Rommedahl they had a really quick player on the wing who we always had to watch out for. But we were better in the build-up and in terms of ball control, and we ran out deserved winners – even without being at our very best.
