Brazil 2010 quotes

Ronaldinho
13 July 2006

"I wanted a different end to my personal dream of winning one more World Cup, but it didn't happen. I am sorry. Nothing I can say will change what happened. This is why I want to apologise, along with my team-mates, for not winning the trophy in Germany."

Juninho Pernambucano
July 2006

"It (the national team) is over for me, and it has finished in a very bad way. There is total sadness. It is not the time to appoint blame. We all lost. We have to think about young guys and build-up another team. All the ones who are more than 30 have to leave their place to the younger players, to make a new team for 2010." Juninho Pernambucano, after Brazil lost to France in Soccer World Cup 2006
