#Quote
1 [after England's 5-1 defeat of Germany in 2001] If we come up against England, we shall beat them. That defeat will not happen again. It will be back to normal with a German victory.
2 [prior to the 2002 World Cup. Both sides were eliminated in the first round] Only two nations can win the World Cup. It will be either France or Argentina, they are the best.
3 Bobby (Bobby Moore) was my football idol. I looked up to him. I was so proud to have played against him.
