John Kaputa, Malawi coach
We were up against very strong opposition, I think Spain can go really far in this tournament. We had our chances, and we finally managed to score a goal. I'm very proud of my players. Now we will return to Malawi with a lot of work to do and progress to be made. I'd like to thank the people of Kano for all their support - we won't forget it.

Gines Melendez, Spain coach
I'd like to congratulate Malawi for the great work they've achieved in such a short space of time. They have improved enormously in the last few years, and I'd encourage them to keep working hard. We were able to outscore them as we controlled the game throughout, but I think Malawi deserved their goal for the number of chances they created.
