John Peacock (ENG), England coach
I'm very pleased. I thought we started very well, but I was disappointed that we didn't score more goals in the second half, as we completely dominated the opening 45 minutes. But on a positive note, the goals that we scored today were of a high quality. Our movement for the first three or four goals was exceptional - and that's something that we've worked upon in training, so it was pleasing to see it pay off. We've been stressing a more clinical approach - and I thought we did well in that respect today.

Colin Tuaa (NZL), New Zealand coach
It was another disappointing performance from our boys. Defensively, we were poor. We are learning a few harsh lessons and I am sure that in the next tournament we play in, we will prepare the side a lot better. But now, we have one opportunity to put it right against Korea DPR and we are going to make the most of it. We need to salvage some pride from this tournament and it will be our final opportunity. We want an outcome that we can take away as a positive.

Victor Moses (ENG), England striker
Things are going well for me, I feel really good at the moment. I think there are more goals to come from me and more wins for the team. But we need to keep working hard as a team and take our chances when they come. I thought we played well in the first half today, but we were a bit sluggish in the second. It was disappointing to just score one goal in the second half. But we're enjoying working together as a squad and I feel that as the tournament goes on, we'll get stronger.

Costa Barbarouses (NZL), New Zealand striker
All of the boys are absolutely gutted. We knew that we had to get a result in this match to get through to the next round, so this result cost us. There are positives to take from the game. In the second half we played really well, but it's not good enough at this level. You have to play for 90 minutes and we haven't done that in the first two games. We're all disappointed tonight, but tomorrow is a new day.
