    Romelu Lukaku on Adnan Januzaj


    “It’s great to have Januzaj in the squad with us now. It is like we are already thinking and looking towards the next generation. He has been brilliant at Manchester United and already in training with us in Brazil he has already been showing his qualities. He has great skill. I was with him in the academy at Anderlecht so I know him very well. I hope he can give us something different. He has shown he can perform for Manchester United so why not at the World Cup too? ”

    Wayne Rooney hit back yesterday at the press via his facebook


    “Sometimes wonder what the press are getting at. I said from the start I want to do everything I can to make sure I'm ready for these World Cup games and as part of that I was doing extra training a week before the squad joined up. That's exactly what I did yesterday, my own extra training because that's what I wanted to do.”

    Gary Neville on Paul Scholes’ comments on Wayne Rooney




    "Paul is a great friend of mine but I am coaching Wayne Rooney, I am of the opinion that when you get to a player like Wayne Rooney, you have to cope with everything that is thrown your way. It wasn't just Paul Scholes talking about Wayne Rooney. The fact of the matter is that it is one man's opinion, it's Paul's opinion and everyone else will have their opinion."

    Gary Neville backs Wayne Rooney and also thinks it is an obsession


    "My opinion is that Wayne Rooney, after seeing him every day in training, is a very important player. He is our top goal scorer under (manager) Roy (Hodgson), he is our main assist man and probably but for a yard he would have been man of the match if he had scored that goal. We came off the pitch the other night and had our coaching debrief with Roy, Ray Lewington, Dave Watson and myself and there was no other suggestion that Wayne Rooney had played pretty well for us in that game, that he had done everything we asked for. You can call it a debate or an obsession. I don't think either are wrong because every time I have been part of a tournament I have seen this with a player, whether it be Gascoigne, Owen, Beckham or Rooney. We love it. The whole country loves creating a drama around one player."

    Rene Meulensteen on Danny Welbeck


    “Energy, first of all. I think he is very, very good tracking back and nicking balls back again when the opposition is trying to build from the back so therefore you're still sort of in your opponents half, you can have quick transition. He's quick, he's got very, very strong you could see that in the little run he made on the right-hand side against Italy when he went through and then crossed into the box. He's a versatile player. I do think is that Danny needs to add to his game in the coming years is a little bit more of an attacking edge when it comes to converting goalscoring chances.”

    Rene Meulensteen baffled by national Wayne Rooney debate


    “It's a bit strange really that there's such a sort of national debate about Wayne in itself. I think we all know what a player he can be and I really agree with what has been previously said that we really need to be positive, we need not to be looking at certain things where it can go wrong for England. We need to look for where it can go right and, in my opinion, he should start and he should start in his best possible position, which is behind Daniel Sturridge."


    "There's lots of positives to take from the Italy game. I think we have got a different sort of threat going forward. But if you know Wayne and the type of player he is, Wayne likes to be involved right from the word go, the more he gets involved the more touches he gets on the ball, the better rhythm he can build for himself, the more chances. You will see him hitting key passes, getting in and around the box, and creating more goalscoring chances for himself. Wayne is that sort of player who understands really, really well that it's a team effort and as long as he can contribute, from whatever position it is, he never has a problem."

    Fellaini on his contribution for Belgium yesterday


    "It was a great goal and it was good for the team, but the most important thing today was the victory, it's important to win the first game. And for the second game it will be good for the confidence. My performance was OK. I scored a goal and the bench made the difference. It was a big impact from the bench."

    Adnan Januzaj on Fellaini’s goal yesterday


    "I'm happy for Marouane, not just because I'm one of his good friends, but because it has been a long time that he didn't score. He has not scored since I have played alongside him. He's the type of player who can always help the team and he scored an unbelievable goal for us."

    Raheem Sterling on Wayne Rooney


    "He’s a world-class player, someone I watched when I was young and someone I look up to, and playing with him at the training camp these last couple of weeks has been a real honour. I speak to him a lot. He just says to relax and express myself and enjoy the game, and not to think too much about what’s going on."

    Juan Mata on Spain’s chances today


    "We have to keep trusting in this style of play. It has led us to many triumphs and it allows us to control games, so I don't see a reason why we should play another way. I feel prouder than ever to belong to this group, this generation. We have remained united in the good times but above all during the bad times, and we have always believed in our football. I have to say that since I arrived here this group has felt like a family, I feel like any other player, the relationship between everyone is fundamental to this team. We aren't dead yet. Losing was a big blow for everyone, but we have to keep the same attitude we have had so we can continue in the same way we always have done. We only have one chance left. The game with Chile is a final and we must remind ourselves that we cannot fail. Chile are a compact team, a very difficult side. We are going to try and prepare well for the game, because we're not going to have many more opportunities."

    “We have played Total Football. Nothing has changed in that respect. This is something I tried to explain. I tried to convince them of this but it proves very difficult. Whenever I say we're applying the Dutch principles it's interpreted differently. In the Netherlands it's assumed if you use three forwards, that's tradition. I have a different view.”

    “There’s always criticism, the journalists have to write something whether positive or negative. In respect of me it tends to be negative, so I don’t think the criticism makes any difference.”

    “The key issue is football and the manager is part of football and I have no view. Because in the middle of the pitch there is a cameraman who deprives me of the view, and with me all the coaches and managers sitting on the ground, because we are dug under rather than dug out. That obliges us to stand up. I’m a sitting-down coach, not a standing-up coach. The person in charge of this should ask, so I’ve done my very best, as he will. The dug-out is at a lower level than the pitch and from where I sit there is also a camera directly in front, so I will be like this [motions from side to side] to try to watch the game. I will need a bar stool to watch the game properly.”
