Quotes from the news wire:
I'm thinking of the lads we didn't get on the pitch -- Conor Coady, Ben Chilwell, Sam Johnstone, Aaron Ramsdale, they're the ones making this team successful, the spirit in the group is phenomenal. Whoever comes in does the job, whoever isn't in -- it is really difficult to leave three out of the matchday squad -- the squad mentality is fantastic. That's uppermost in my mind, looking after those guys.
Bizarre game really, poor errors for the goals but really pleased with the composure we showed to come back from the early mistake with some devastating attacking play, the mistakes were obvious, the errors, we have to be better. The players don't really need me to tell them that. We have mentioned it. The outstanding part of our play was obvious and the errors were obvious too.
The lads would always be prepared to risk injury for these games, but that can't be to the detriment of the performance level. When it gets to these games, they're not always as honest as they might be about how fit they are. So you've got to have a racehorse trainer's eye at times to really try and sort that out.
I've had a couple of decades thinking it through. It's not about luck. It's not about chance. It's about performing a skill under pressure, there are things you can work on, things that can be helpful for the preparation for the players. We have studied it. There is a lot we can do to own the process, and not be controlled by it.
I believe we can win it. Anyone can. I can't say we're not going to win it, because we could. I want to win everything I do. It's my mind-set. So do the players, that's what we're going to try and do. There are some really god teams in the World Cup, but World Cup's worth fighting for, those dreams of lifting World Cup. We're going to fight and give everything we've got.
