Uruguay coach Fabian Coito
"Fortune was surely a factor in the game today and it played a part in us winning the game. Even so, we showed great character. It’s a wonderful feeling to reach the next round and we just need to keep going step-by-step and pushing forward. We have not conceded a goal so far in this competition and it is a good thing to be able to say that. Rwanda is a young football country, but they gave us many problems today. They are progressing very quickly and I take my hat off to them."

Rwanda coach Richard Tardy
"It’s a difficult thing to lose this way. We did our best and to have the game end this way is just very sad for the team. It is a hard way to lose a football match. You can’t believe how demoralising this is for my team. We are still alive and I have told my players that. We will prepare for our game with Canada as if it were any other game. We will fight to the end and we will try give something back to the fans here in Pachuca, who have been so beautiful to us. We will work for them to show them the way we can play."
