"England have been the most impressive team so far".

"So, we were at home and I went to get changed and I thought, "Hmmm, shall I wear those socks?'". Against Sweden (2-0 win in the quarter-finals) they were magnificent. "We've learned from our mistakes, which is the most important thing, and we've made things right", he said.

"It's been a fantastic World Cup, of course it's always better for us because we've won some games". He knew there was a chance to make history. We know what's at stake and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel because this is maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
