Diego Maradona Jr., Italy player
We knew it was going to be a very even and competitive game and that’s what we’d been preparing for from the start. We always felt confident about getting the win, though. We were drawn in a very difficult group, the toughest in the whole competition in fact, but we’ve got through it. We have to be focused on Brazil now because I’m sure they'll finish first in their section.

Richard Sterling, Costa Rica player
I think we put in a good performance, but we couldn’t get the goals. We got into good positions, but we weren’t able to put our chances away. I’m happy to be going away with a goal to my name, though, and I think I’ve made the most of this experience. I hope it will help me grow in the future.
