Denmark coach Thomas Frank
"Today I think they were just the better team. This was the best performance that I have seen so far in this World Cup. Côte d’Ivoire were amazing. If they continue this performance, they are going to win the World Cup. Actually, I think they must be the favorites. The statistics show us this: 33 shots from the Ivorians, and 9 from Denmark. Honestly, I just told the guys in the locker room that today there was no excuse. We just couldn’t do anything. They were so skilled, so fast and they have such good technique."
Côte d’Ivoire coach Alain Gouaméné
“When Denmark first scored, I was a little bit worried, but after that we reacted quickly and went ahead. Having seen the first match against Australia, we had a lot of opportunities to score, but we missed a lot too. The only thing we could do was to work on this, and today I am very happy with the results of that work. I would like to thank the the Denmark coach for his comments, but I don’t think that we should be considered favorites."
