"We have had some luck with the group. It could have been worse, look at the group with Brazil, Ivory Coast and Portugal," he told Swiss TV.
"Chile is a match we must win if we want to get to the knockout stages. Honduras are clearly the outsiders in the group."
HONDURAS COACH REINALDO RUEDA
"The group is very balanced, with two strong European teams and another good opponent in Chile. Spain is very strong. Chile has developed significantly over the past year and will be a great competitor," he told reporters.

PRESIDENT OF CHILEAN FA, HAROLD MAYNE NICHOLLS
"We all have a 25 percent chance... Spain perhaps a bit more but we are confident about our team. Switzerland is a little better team than us... they beat us in 2007 and they had a wonderful qualification in the European Championship," he told reporters.
"Spain has one of the best teams. We played against them last November and they beat us 3-0. There is a little bit of a difference between us and them. But football is still a game in which nobody can predict anything."
