Solomon Luvhengo, South Africa coach
The Germans are a very good team, strong and organised in every way. They played us perfectly today. We are hoping to win our last match and that would be a moral victory for us here. Hopefully we can achieve this and go home with our heads held high. Clearly, we were not in a position to beat a team as good as Germany. Our preparations were not good enough.

Ralf Peter, Germany coach
We have to take things one game at a time. Our next game is against South Korea, and we will be aiming to beat them to win the group. We had some trouble in the opening minutes of this game because South Africa put good pressure on us. We played OK in the first half, but the second half was not good and we will need to talk about it. I think we can do a lot better. Our team spirit is very good and we have worked very hard in our preparations. There is no secret to our success so far, but we are hoping to keep our performances up.
