"It was important to score so early in the match. After that we had chances to score the second goal but we couldn't. Most importantly was to start the tournament with three points. I also congratulate our opponents for their performance." Turkey coach Abdullah Ercan.
"Firstly I would like to congratulate my colleague for his victory. Naturally we wanted to win, everybody wants to have a good start but their start was better than ours. We cannot complain about the result. I would like to have at least a draw but our players are very inexperienced and on this occasion we were not able to overcome the defenders of the Turkish team." Burkina Faso coach Rainer Willfeld.
