THE NATIONAL TEAM MUST TAKE LESSON FOR WHAT POHANG DO BY DEFEAT EUROPE AND AMERICAN TEAM... SO KOREA REPUBLIC CAN WIN OVER ARGENTINA, NEGERIA AND GREEK

Sergio Farias, Pohang Steelers coach
To finish third at a world finals is a great result for this young squad. I think it was deserved. I'm pleased with our performance today. The players who came in thrived. Coming here was a great experience. I hope we can qualify for next year's tournament. If so, we'll try to do better and reach the final.

Jose Cruz, Atlante coach
We're sad to have lost but congratulations to Pohang. They played well, although I think we played a little better and deserved to win. We had a lot of chances in the second half but just couldn't put them away. We're going home with our heads held high. I think we put on a good show here and gave a good representation of Mexican football.
