Kim Yong Ho, Korea Republic coach
We didn't play as well today as we did against England because we lost our balance, and also our physical condition was not the best. We got tired quite quickly but I must give my players credit because, right until the end, they never gave up. These players have very bright futures.

Kazbek Tambi, USA coach
The kids have been getting a bit better every game and that culminated in their best game of the tournament today. I'm as much a fan as I am a coach and I was excited by what I saw out there today. Everybody played well, it was a great team effort, and I'm really proud of all of them. Now we go on to Germany, who we know are an awesome team and one of the favourites here.
