Quotes from the news wire:
We made it to the World Cup and we're really happy about that, but we didn't quite anticipate how many fans we would gain all over the world. But in sports in general everyone loves the underdog, we are a fairytale story, a nation of 350,000 people on this big stage is quite something, and we hear it from fans all over the world.
We have excellent coaches with good education, and as much as we can to make sport accessible to everyone, regardless of family income or social status, if you love football or any other sport as a kid, it should be manageable to go to your local club and play. The emphasis at youth level is on participation and equality, and afterwards you can see if there's a new (Lionel) Messi or (Cristiano) Ronaldo in the group.
Whatever happens at the World Cup, we will be proud of our players, because they will have played as a team and given all they have, and that is all we can ask for. I think we'll be number two in the group, and if not, we'll still have had a wonderful tournament, if the dream comes true - but in a way the dream has already come true, and everything after that is a bonus.
