Ri Song Gun, Korea DPR coach
I’m very happy with the result, especially as it was so crucial in terms of our qualification hopes. Chile are a good side – they play some great football. The sending-off made our task that bit easier, as it completely disrupted their shape. We’re looking better and better from a fitness point of view, and that could be a deciding factor in our upcoming match with the host nation.
Ronnie Radonich, Chile coach
There’s no denying that Korea DPR were the best team on the pitch today. Their energy and physical strength completely overwhelmed us. At 1-0, we still had a bit of hope. Nicole Conejo’s red card put us in real trouble, and from then on we were always struggling. Against Nigeria in our last match, we’ll try to finally produce the quality of football that we know we’re capable of.
