"We made a lot of individual mistakes in the second period. This won't happen in the quarter-finals because we will work to put this right. We fought hard to get the win. I've no preference who we play next - we will just try to beat every team in front of us to win the title," Ze Miguel, Portugal coach.

"It was a very difficult game. Portugal are the best team in Europe with quality player like Madjer and Belchior. Because we are the world champions at football, our fans expect us to become the world champions at beach soccer, so there's a lot of pressure on us. But that is our objective, to win the title," Diego Maradona Jr, Italy player.
