Joe Hart, England National Team
World Cup Brazil 2014 : England 0 -1 Germany
"Not the result we were looking for last night. On a positive note, it's been an extremely successful year with the England team. We achieved our goal of qualification and we'll do everything we can to prepare in the right way ahead of the World Cup! Looking forward to heading back to Manchester now and getting back to training with the United lads!," said Wayne Rooney after the match.
"It's disappointing to get boos," remarked England boss Roy Hodson. " "The major disappointment is two fold: we didn't show the quality I expected, and having 150,000 people through to watch us and send them home disappointed.
"The Germans were better in the quality of their passing and finishing. We let ourselves down in the final third tonight. We can do better. We know that.
"It's always disappointing to get boos, but there aren't many games where the home side don't get the result and then don't boo. We don't want that.
"We want the applause we had after the Montenegro and Poland games.
"But to get the applause, that level of acclaim, we're going to have to play better and win matches. We didn't play well enough tonight, didn't win, and sent 85,000 people home disappointed."
"What about Townsend's shot that hit the post? Is that not on target? I rest my case," snapped Hodgson.
"It's been a great year for the FA, and a great year for me because we've qualified for the World Cup," said Hodgson. "I'm not prepared that the fact we've used a lot of players, and used these two very tough friendly matches - a severe test against Chile and Germany - to accept, for one minute, personally, that that's going to take the shine off a very good year.
"We've achieved our goal and have a lot to look forward to in 2014: a lot of players fiercely trying to contest their places in the squad, and I'm looking forward to it. I thank 2013 for that."
"Joe Hart proved I was right about him. He played very well and wasn't snowed under with work, and we shaded it territorially, but they created more chances."
