Hiroshi Yoshida, Japan coach
I'm very happy with the result and, now that we are qualified, I can rest some of my key players in the third game. Because we combined great football with six goals in the first half, I think it was an ideal performance.

Gerard Sergent, France coach
Japan were too strong, too fast and too technical for us. Their play was almost scientific - synchronised even - and I can only congratulate them for such a performance. We made some technical mistakes but we are still in with a chance and will try our best to beat the US.
