Del Bosque: ” A great era for Spanish football”

Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach Before I start to analyse anything I’d like to say that everyone loses sometimes. Italy had a great tournament but had that injury with Thiago Motta [which left them to play the last 28 minutes with ten men] and the game effectively ended then. We played well, got the first […]

Euro 2012 – Prandelli: “I was seduced”

Cesare Prandelli, Italy coach We prepared very well for this game. Of course you need to actually get things right on the day. We knew they were very good on the flanks – we wanted to keep the ball and knock it about in midfield. We took a bit of a risk but got Antonio […]

Del Bosque: “Fabregas wanted to take it”

Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach Portugal were superior when it came to defending. We didn’t have that many opportunities, so it was very balanced. In extra time, it was slightly different, and then we had lots of luck in the penalty shoot-out. I want to congratulate Portugal because they played a great tournament, but we […]

Prandelli: “We won the lottery”

Cesare Prandelli, Italy coach I wasn’t surprised by tonight. I knew we could control the game. My worry was that we were allowing England too much space on the break – we could have been a bit cleverer in our build-up play. We tried to play football. We tried to draw England out; we tried […]

Del Bosque: “A dominant Spain”

Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach Playing with a true forward gives you more depth but we wanted to have more continuity, to dominate and to have possession of the ball in order to create chances. I don’t think this is an unfair outcome because we were in control most of the time. We are talking about […]

Joachim Löw: “A fantastic performance”

Joachim Löw, Germany coach First of all, I would like to say it was a fantastic performance from our team. For the fourth time in a row, we have qualified for the semi-final of a major tournament. Nobody thought we could have done that back in 2004. We have won 15 games in a row. We are […]

Bento praised Portugal for their “great response” in the second half

Paulo Bento, Portugal coach We weren’t very efficient in possession in the first 20 to 25 minutes. Then we took control of the game, increasingly dominated, and picked up the pace. We showed great quality in the second half. We dominated throughout, and when you dominate, you have to be clinical both up front and […]

Euro 2012 Wrap Up Group D: England win the group

Roy Hodgson, England manager All we seem to do is talk about expectations. It’s more important to talk about how the team has conducted itself in the tournament. It’s been a really good tournament for us and we’ve enjoyed every minute of it. The fans who’ve followed us around have always found themselves in a […]

Group C – Wrap Up: Spain and Italy go through

Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach We were lacking penetration – they closed up the spaces well and that caused us a lot of problems. We had some nervous moments, especially when Iker Casillas made that save [from Ivan Rakitić’s header]. We talked before the game and knew they were going to play the way they […]
