WHAT Australia's most senior players said after the 4-0 World Cup loss to Germany in Durban.
To see World Cup fans out and about in Sydney overnight...
Tim Cahill: "It's one of the lowest points of my career. But this is the beauty of football. One day you are a hero, the next day you are at the bottom."
Vince Grella: "F..ck no-one died. It's a game of football. They are very good. We knew they were going to be a tough opposition. We just have to sleep it off and start again tomorrow."
Lucas Neill: "We conceded an early goal. A goal that we were very disappointed with against a very, very good team and then we made it an uphill battle."
Luke Wilkshire: "We've got to pick ourselves up. There is two games to play for. Six points and two games we must win."
Scott Chipperfield: "It was a hard game. They were too good today. They had good movement, we lost the midfield. We had a good start. We could have scored the first couple of minutes. But the first goal was a killer."
Craig Moore: "We shot ourselves in the foot really. The second goal probably killed it off. Overall, we were certainly outplayed by a far better side."
Brett Emerton: "I thought they were a very good team, but I don't think we helped ourselves either. When we got possession of the ball we gave it away cheaply and they seemed to cut us open really easily. Hopefully we learn a lesson from it."
Mark Schwarzer: "Devastating, obviously. It was not what we planned and not what we expected. It was a bitter situation to be in and obviously it's very, very hard to take. "
