Ruben Subeldia, Paraguay coach
This was an excellent opener as we showed ourselves to be the most potent attack force today in our group. Our objective? We came here to Brazil to win the trophy, but we need to take it one game at a time if we are to achieve that.
Walter Villalba, Paraguay player
Both sides were tense at first, but once we scored the first goal, we began to play freely. In the end we won well.
Keith Tozer, USA coach
Paraguay played the better football and were deserved winners. We made uncustomary mistakes and paid dearly for them. What do we need to change? I don't think we need to modify too much, but rather have more confidence in our game plan and to execute it.
