Alexandre Soares, Brazil coach
Today we played better than last time. We managed to up the tempo a lot more and controlled possession almost the whole time. The next match will be against Japan, a game that I expect to be difficult, but that we absolutely want to win. We’ll try to play like this again.

Ramon Raya, Mexico coach
Brazil are a major force in this sport and we knew that it would be tough. We tried to take the game to them, and when you do that they usually win by a landslide but today that didn’t happen because we were able to contain them well on the whole. Right from the first match we knew that we’d be battling it out with Ukraine for a place in the second round."
