“We’re delighted we achieved our aim of reaching the final. It was a difficult match against a side that was very well-organised defensively. We didn’t play well in the first half; we were nervous and didn’t show enough determination. On top of that we gave the ball away too often. The game didn’t pan out as planned for us, which is why I made some changes. After that we were able to get into it better. Now we’ll start preparing for the final and will do everything we can to win. We’ll try to play to the best of our ability and to meet expectations, even if we are going up against one of the best teams in the world with a lot of quality individuals.”
Edgardo Bauza, CA San Lorenzo coach

“We’re the moral victors. We had the chance to win the game in normal time. My players are obviously devastated because we came so close to winning. We’re very proud of the way we played today and we’ll remember it for a long time. We were brave, had a lot of possession against the South American champions, and showed that we can compete at this high level and play good football. I’m very proud of my players - they’d have deserved to win today. It’s fantastic to be at this tournament and show the world what we’re capable of.”
Ramon Tribulietx, Auckland City FC coach
