Aleš Mertelj, Slovenia midfielder
We are very disappointed, because we came back after England went ahead 2-1, but they scored again after 20 seconds. We wanted this point, but we didn't get it, so we are disappointed. We'll receive some points in the other matches. We know that England are the favourites in our group.
We have to look for points in other matches. September will be here soon. We want to win matches and we have a good team. We have to do better on the pitch. We have to score more goals and we'll be better.
Srečo Katanec, Slovenia coach
We knew it would be a tough match. England showed why they are still unbeaten in this group. I am sorry that we came so close to grabbing a point, but that's football. I'm proud, my players were at their maximum. If you look at the full 90 minutes England deserved to win, but unfortunately we were five minutes from a point. At this level you cannot afford errors like we made for the third goal.
