Benjamin, Brazil captain
I want to congratulate Nigeria for the performance they put on today. To be honest scoring a lot of goals wasn't our main aim, we just wanted to win. In the World Cup every game is important and we take it step by step. We are ready for anything at this tournament and we will face a strong challenge from all our rivals.

Bruno, Brazil player
The beginning of the match was very tough for us especially as it was our first game. We scored a lot of goals especially in the first period and that is what made the game easier for us. Nigeria tried to get back into the game in the third period but the gap was too wide. The Bahrain match is very important for us. If we win we qualify for the next round so we’ll want to play well and please all our beach soccer fans with a good showing.

Isiaka Olawale, Nigeria player
It was a good match but we lost the game because of Brazil’s strength. We tried to keep up with Brazil but just couldn’t, I believe we have the skills which will help us to qualify for the next round. We won’t underestimate Switzerland or Bahrain but we’ll try and take six points from those games. The types of players we have in our squad will help us to do that.
