Ralf Peter, Germany coach
If we score early in our matches it's because the players are mentally strong, but there's also an element of luck. We didn't panic when they reduced the deficit to 2-1 and we dominated the second half. It's a deserved victory but by no means an easy one.
Bryan Rosenfeld, Canada coach
It's a shame to have conceded a goal so early on. The Germans are a class above and play fast and accurate football. We reacted by cutting their lead before the interval but the third goal killed us off. We've achieved our objective, which was to make it through the first phase, and we did so while giving a good account of Canadian football. We play fair and we always give it our all.
