Adelaide-Waitakere: Quotes

Aurelio Vidmar, Adelaide United coach
It was a very difficult game. I have to give a lot of credit to Waitakere United who made life very difficult for us. They're a smart footballing team with a smart coach and you can see that they've learnt a lot. They knew exactly how to play. They managed to get a goal and we had to learn to be a little bit patient and I was delighted that we came from behind. However, we know that we're going to have to play better if we're going to defeat Gamba Osaka.

Chris Milicich, Waitakere United coach
One of the key things we came here to do was have a bit of redemption from last year. I think we categorically gained that and we also categorically proved that Oceania deserve to be at this tournament. If we'd been a little bit cleverer or perhaps luckier with some of our counter attacks, particularly in the second half, then we might have gone through. We've made great strides over the past 12 months - and I think everyone saw that.
