“The match was nothing like the Auckland game. The Mexicans are a very skilful side but we were equal to the task, especially in defence, and we fought for every ball. They put an awful lot of pressure on us but we stood tall, showed plenty of character and energy and came away with a deserved win. We’ve got a young team but I’m just amazed at how mentally strong they are and I’m so pleased with the performance they put in. We’re in the semis now. We need to keep on believing in ourselves and stay positive. I’d like to thank our fans because their support made all the difference. We wanted to put on a show for them. It’s time for a little break now and then we’ll start to prepare for the match against Atletico Mineiro,” Faouzi Benzarti, Raja Casablanca coach
