I came out of retirement not just to help qualification but also because this team has the players who can do something.

We are back to being the old Real Madrid. If we keep playing like this then I'm sure we'll win something.

Hello Mr President.

Think -- and I stress my words -- about the consequences of voting for a party that does not at all correspond to the values of France.

The sooner we find the net the better. We know that we must slot a fair number of goals to compensate for a possible away victory by the Swiss.

It went well for Real tonight and we can be happy with how we've done in the tournament until now. We played our game and I think our victory was deserved.

I think we have the team to go very far at the European championships. Now we just have to be ready on time.

It was an exceptional game, like we had in 2000 with Portugal and Italy, ... In these two matches we managed to reverse the trend, and we did it again.

It was the last chance free kick, we were not expecting a match like that.
