Hiroshi Yoshida, Japan coach
I thought we reacted very well and even when we went a player down the team stuck together and stayed positive. I don't see ourselves as favourites for the tournament. I just think we've been one of the best teams up until now.

Gloria Villamayor, Paraguay player
We took the lead and tried to hold on to it up to the break but we just couldn't get there. Japan are a very good side and it was no surprise to see them come back. Although we've gone out of the competition, this has been a very positive experience for us. We have learned an awful lot together in the last year and that will stand us in good stead for future tournaments.
