Quotes: Netherlands, Denmark, Cameroon

Reaction from Group E teams Netherlands, Denmark, Japan and Cameroon following the draw for the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa made in Cape Town on Friday. NETHERLANDS COACH BERT VAN MARWIJK

"It is a dangerous group and we shouldn't underestimate any of our opponents. "Denmark won their (qualifying) group with Portugal, Hungary and Sweden, so are a strong opponent."

"We recently beat Japan 3-0 in a friendly but it wasn't easy at all and the score was a bit flattering, while I consider Cameroon as one of the strongest three countries in Africa."


"We did not have the easiest qualifying competition because we suffered a lot with injuries and at one time had four of our most important players out with injury," he told reporters.

"I hope that by the time the World Cup starts, everyone will be fit and ready for action. The Dutch start as the favourites of course but Japan and Cameroon are not easy opponents either."


"I suppose Denmark and Japan are clearly not as competitive as the Dutch but they all have potential and worth.

"With two European teams in our group we have a tough programme of matches. We must now get together to prepare.

"The way we finished our qualifying campaign gave us real confidence. Our advantage is now we play in the African Nations Cup (in January) and we can really put some good preparation together. I'm certain we can get second place in the group."
