Quotes

Maher Kanzari (TUN), Tunisia coach
"The game was important because we were up against a team who lost their first match. We played with a lot of concentration. Because the US team pushed forward to score first, it was easier for us to find spaces behind their defence. We didn't have a problem with playing in the heat, because we know how to play under any circumstances."
