Ze Miguel Mateus, Portugal coach
"We went into great detail in preparing for this game and we played well, as the result shows. It was an exciting match, and though we’re in a rich vein of form at the moment I don’t think we’ve had it easy in this group. We have complete respect for our opponents and all of them deserve to be here in Ravenna."
Talib Al Thanawi, Oman coach
"We were up against one of the strongest teams in the world and it was a very tough game for us. This World Cup has been a fantastic experience for us though, and we’ve learned so much. We have come on a lot in the last few years even though it has been an uphill battle to get this far. I hope we can keep on improving because we want to qualify for Tahiti 2013."
