Saul Resendiz, Mexico coach
It was important to end the competition on a high note and luckily we managed to go out with a win. The difference between today and the previous game was that we packed a punch and took the chances we created. I hope this experience will make us stronger for the future.

Solomon Luvhengo, South Africa coach
I think we played our worst match of the lot today. We were strong against Korea and I thought we did really well in the second half against Germany but today we made some inexplicable mistakes. Mexico just outplayed us, took their chances and made better decisions. What positive things can I take out of this tournament? Well, I felt very proud of them in the first game. They were tactically aware and showed lots of skill and character.
