"We started well but then El Salvador took two kicks and went ahead. It was better for us in the second half, we had more opportunities and managed to get the victory. I would like to congratulate the El Salvador team for a very good performance. We're desperate to win our group but it will be difficult due to the quality of our rivals, especially Italy," Hernani, Portugal player.

"The start was fantastic, we were 2-1 up. But Portugal worked really hard and we made too many mistakes. I was so happy to see the flag of El Salvador in the crowd and would like to say a big hello to our country. Our objective is still the same: to go as far as possible," Luis Rodas, El Salvador goalkeeper.
