Yemi Tella (NGA), Nigeria coach
"I'm very happy because we won against Germany, who are a very good side and scored a lot of goals so far. We played very well in the first half and I think the turning point of the game was the tenth minute when we scored the first goal. After that, we could play our football. I'm also glad as we didn't let them do that today and kept our promise that we would play in the final."

Heiko Herrlich (GER), Germany coach
"I think Nigeria deserve the victory. After the two mistakes from our goalkeeper, it was difficult for us to recover. We were unlucky especially when Sukuta-Pasu hit the post before half-time. I changed the team a bit in the second half but the game didn't go as well as planned. But I want to thank the players because they did their best. Winning the third place match would be a very good finish to this tournament in Korea."

Macauley Chrisantus (NGA), Nigeria forward
"I'm happy and proud with the seven goals I've scored so far, which would be enough for me to win the golden boot. Now the only thing left for us is to win the final game and lift the trophy."

Kevin Wolze (GER), Germany midfielder
"The pitch condition was tough for us and made it very hard to play. We could have controlled the game but the luck was against us. We kept up the pressure in the second half and tried to play well but it didn't work. We're still eager to win the third place game against Ghana because this is a big tournament for us."
