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. I'm pleased that Tunisia qualified for the second round for the first time."

John Hackworth (USA), USA coach
"It's a tough result for us. I don't think we played well enough in the first half, but we kept pushing and pushing. The Tunisians defended so well and we couldn't make the best of the opportunities that came in the closing minutes. We are very disappointed. This group has turned out to be the toughest one."

Nour Hadhria (TUN), Tunisia midfielder
"We've been playing together for four years now and we're like a family. The key to our success is the team spirit within the group."

Alex Nimo (USA), USA forward
"There's not a lot of things to say about this game. We couldn't play our football but it wasn't because of the heat. We'll do our best for the last game against Belgium."
