Manuel Urena (CRC), Costa Rica coach: "We struggled in the first half. We didn't see much of the ball and they dominated. We managed to tighten up in midfield after the restart though, and get some control back. I have to say we were a bit lucky too and our keeper was in excellent form. Nevertheless, we took our chances when they came and that was what won us the game."
