England coach John Peacock
"We were expecting it to be a difficult game, and it was, so I am proud of my players' performance today. We ended the first round at the top of the group and did not lose a game, which is really great. We are hoping to have this type of performance in the next match and have four days to prepare for it. We will be ready for a new challenge in the second round."
Uruguay coach Fabian Coito
"It was a difficult game for us. We knew the heat would make it more difficult, but it is no excuse for the loss today. England needed the win to finish first in the group, but we were still able to create several chances against them. Unfortunately we did not finish any of them. We have some time to prepare for the upcoming game against Congo and will be at full strength to focus on winning the match."
