Gines Melendez, Spain coach
I'd like to thank the players for all their efforts to turn things round. I told them to remain calm, that there was plenty of time to come back. The first half was incredible. I also want to stress what a great welcome the people of Kano have given all the teams. In my six World Cups, I've never seen such a full stadium with such passionate fans.
Wilmer Cabrera, USA coach
We played well against a great team. We took the lead, but they had a fantastic 20-minute spell in which they turned the game around. The boys tried to come back and had chances to equalise, but weren't able to put them away. I hope we can play to the same level in our remaining matches.
