Paul Temple, New Zealand coach
"We're shell-shocked. But I feel our girls did themselves proud and showed the big crowd that we're capable of competing and have a lot to offer at world level. It's amazing to get 13,000 at a women's U-17 match - the only down side was that the players couldn't hear a thing I was saying!"

Bryan Rosenfeld, Canada coach
"I'm really glad we got through tonight. It was an important three points, a great atmosphere and a big experience for the girls. In the end, we were lucky not to actually lose the game; New Zealand really put the pressure on us in the second half. But I have to commend my players for holding out."
