"We began badly and that cost us. The absence of Cheikh Ba hurt us, but I thought we played heroically. Bravo to the kids. We'll do our best to win our last match and qualify for quarter-finals," Amadou Diop, Senegal coach.

"We were so focused on winning that I'm not sure if it was a good game or not. We're very happy to have won, especially against such a good side. We knew it would be difficult against Senegal but we achieved what we wanted," Parillo, Uruguay player
