Kenneth Zseremeta, Venezuela coach
Spain are definitely the best team we’ve come up against – let’s face it, they aren’t European champions by accident. Our players did their best, and looking at the final score, they really put in a heroic performance today. Unfortunately, our goal came a little bit too early for us, and we just weren’t able to hold out for the draw.

Jorge Vilda, Spain coach
It was an even, toughly-contested match right up to the final whistle. I’m happy with the result, but not with the way my team played. Venezuela proved to be difficult adversaries, putting our defence under serious pressure. We struggled to get the ball forward and our shooting was weak. Our opponents put in a fine display, though.
