Wilmer Cabrera, USA coach
We're very happy with the win, and most of all, to have qualified. It's true that we created many chances and were only able to put one away, but it was enough to win, and that's what counts. Our congratulations to the UAE, who played really well. Both teams went all out for the win, that's what's so remarkable about today's game.
Al Arfi, UAE assistant coach
What can I say about having qualified, except that we're over the moon. We've got a great team, but today we lost out to the USA, who are another great team. But that doesn't matter now, we're just happy to be through to the last 16, where I think we can continue to spring surprises.
