Venancio Ramos, Uruguay coach
It was one heck of a tough match, just like our earlier games. The thing that stood out for me today was the way the team fought. It wasn't easy to get through as we were short of mtach practice when we arrived in Rio de Janeiro, but we're getting that with each game now. We'll sit back and enjoy this win for a little while and then we'll start thinking about Nigeria.
