Lois Fidler, England coach
We had a lot of tired legs out there. The Germans deserved their win; physically, they were just too much for us. We tried our best to contain them but we didn't deal with their presence at set pieces. But we've exceeded everyone's expectations here and I was proud of them again today in terms of the dignity and character they showed in defeat.
Ralf Peter, Germany coach
We end the tournament satisfied to have reached our goal, which was to win a medal. Of course, we would have preferred to compete in the final, but you have to be able to accept what you deserve. Today, we deserved to win and we have shown our true quality. Despite the disappointment of the semi-final, the girls are very happy today and leave the tournament with smiles on their faces.
