I'm really disappointed that we lost today. In my opinion, Portugal were the better team on the day and we came close to winning. But Brazil are a great side and they showed that," Belchior, Portugal player.

It was a very difficult game. Portugal played very well and it was very difficult to win. But we managed to overcome their challenge and reach the final. It was a collective victory today and we're very happy," Mao, Brazil goalkeeper.
