Mohammad Hashemzadeh, Iran player
We learnt from our two previous matches, when we carried on attacking despite being in the lead and let our rivals back into the game. This time we followed the coach's instructions to the letter and it paid off. Our dream is to face Brazil in the next round and in the final.

Jorge Rodriguez, Uruguay player
We lost because we lacked experience and we couldn't take our chances. They scored the goals and we missed them. We're inexperienced, though, and this is the first taste of international competition for many of us. We're going to keep on working because we've got a young team with a big future.
