Roberto Martinez – Belgium

On the Premier League: “You have to admit that the players have acquired big, important roles to realize from now until the end of the period, winning titles, playing in large games. That the players are in the maximum demanding league football, no break in the winter.

On Belgium’s chances of success: “In several ways when you go into the World Cup the teams that are a bit the favorites are the nations which have won the World Cup before, there is an emotional level that you have to succeed in order to have that.” Fifa World Cup 2018

On playing England and Gareth Southgate: “He’s someone I know fine and shared big tournaments. He is a nobleman, someone I respect and I wish him the best of luck – apart from the game against Belgium!

On the group: “It was a very virtuous draw in terms of the group – very varied to be playing Panama who is going to be conveying the excitement of playing in the World Cup for the first time after an unbelievable qualification in which they knocked the United States out of the World Cup. Then Tunisia with their style fetch all the ingredients to have a very diverse group. Fifa World Cup 2018

Nabil Maaloul – Tunisia

On the group: “It is a problematic draw, of course, we have Belgium and England. Belgium is presently fifth in the world and England are 15th so we are going to try to play our game. We know the England team have better massively with the new coach, and Belgium also has better too. We have a chance. On paper, Belgium is favorites in the group but second place will be opposed by the Tunisia team and England. Fifa World Cup 2018, FIFA World Cup

(For me the finest team are Belgium, they are the group favorites. They have a lot of players who play in England and they are presently playing really well for a lot of clubs in England, so they are favorites and second place is between Tunisia and England. I expect it won’t be the same situation as in 1998 [when England beat Tunisia 2-0].  I expect we’ll have a very changed scenario for the Tunisia team. But it is too true that England has better massively this year under the new coach.)

Hernan Dario Gomez – Panama

On the group: “Here with Panama, we’re very cheerful with this group since that’s why we’ve come – to play the big teams, the huge names, Belgium, England, and Tunisia. I drew together England and Tunisia in France [1998 with Colombia], so happy. Panama is presently at a point of learning, of progress, it’s an extraordinary level for Panama and we have to become a lot better but that’s why we’ve come isn’t it? To play against the big names.” Fifa World Cup 2018

In England:  A young team, that’s recently been renovated. Organized. Practical. We similarly played against Iran, who are like Tunisia. We have information of what we’ll come up against. I haven’t come here to play against the similar sides. We need to face sides that show you, that educate you. It’s a World Cup. Panama is preparing for precisely this.” World Cup

On dangerous players: the only truly dangerous player in the world is [Lionel] Messi. They all have good players, Belgium, England. Fifa World Cup 2018
