Juan Santisteban (ESP), Spain coach
"I'm elated, first of all because of how well the team played, and secondly because we overcame a very strong side. It's also the first time I've been on the winning side against Ghana, and that makes me very happy. It's always difficult to beat typically African sides like them. The only downside was the sending-off of Bojan."

Sellas Tetteh (GHA), Ghana coach
"This is an extremely painful defeat for us in what was a very even game. I thought it was an absorbing match in which we lacked a bit of luck. A draw would have been a fairer result if you ask me. We've lost to two European teams here, Germany and now Spain today, and the reason is that they were technically superior to us. We need to regroup now to try and get third place and put Ghanaian football right up there, which is what we've been doing here so far."

Daniel Aquino (ESP), Spain forward
"I'm thrilled we are in the final. It was a very physical match and we knew that if we tried to match them in that respect we'd come off second best. We used our heads out there, we were mentally strong and we responded well physically in extra-time. I didn't celebrate my goal at first because I wanted to make sure he hadn't blown for anything. Scoring the opening goal for your team in a semi-final is something very special."

Sadick Adams (GHA), Ghana forward
"We played a great game, we gave our very best and I think we just lacked a little luck. There is one thing I'm sure of, though: we didn't deserve to lose to Spain. Now we've got to concentrate on finishing third because it's been a while since we finished in the top three, and it's very important we do that for Ghanaian football. As for who will win the trophy, well, it would be good for Africa if Nigeria win."
