'I can't believe that we can beat Germany 5-1 away, it seems like a dream, it's unbelievable. I said to the players 'I don't know what to say to you.' I told the players before the game, if you play football as you can play we can beat any team, even Germany away but I can't believe it was 5-1.'

England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson

'You can dream about scoring a hat-trick but you don't think it is going to come true. It was unbelievable to come here.

No-one would have predicted this scoreline but some of us might have predicted the victory.'

England hat-trick hero Michael Owen

'But I still think we are going in the right direction. We are a much harder team to beat, we are organised and we have now drawn six of our eight games. Against very good eastern European sides away from home, we have been splendid.'

Wales manager Mark Hughes
