Abrahams Allotey, Ghana coach
I’m naturally very happy with my team. They played good football tonight and fought for every ball, but the best is still to come and we’ll do everything possible to prove it. Against the Republic of Ireland, we’ll have no choice other than to win if we want to continue this adventure. They’re a very good team, but so are Ghana.
Edvaldo Erlacher, Brazil coach
We knew it would be a very tough match. Ghana urgently needed to get a win and they managed just that. We gave them far too much space in the first half and although we tightened up in the second, it wasn’t enough. We still have one match left to play and we have to win it.
