"I'm very pleased with our victory. We now feel good to have qualified for the next phase, but our next game against Potugal will be harder. El Salvador are a good team and we respected them, but we were better today. We will now fight to win our group," Massimiliano Esposito, Italy player.
"It was impossible to win today. We had good tactics but Italy were too good. We're a very young team and today we gained a lot of experience that will hopefully serve us well at the next Beach Soccer World Cup," Tomas Hernandez, Solomon Islands player.
