Nigeria-Germany: Quotes

Stanley Okoro, Nigeria forward
In the first half we were punished because we didn't follow our coach's instructions. In the second, we came out with the sole intention of applying the game plan, without even thinking of the scoreline. Germany are an excellent side and kept possession well in the first half. And when we don't have the ball, we can't impose our game. So when they had a player sent off, we obviously had a lot more possession and were able to get a foothold in the game. 

Marco Pezzaiuoli, Germany coach
Even when we were leading 3-0, I still couldn't relax. I won't be able to relax until the 90th minute of the final match - in other words, until we lift the Cup. Naturally, I'm disappointed because all coaches want to win, but I'm still satisfied with the game. For an hour, we played the perfect match, but after the red card, with the fatigue and the pressure from Nigeria, we caved in. But I can't put it all down to the red card, as even with 10 players we should still be able to keep our shape. In a group like ours, every game is very difficult. It'll be very hard to qualify for the next round, but I'm convinced that the teams from this group who do go through will have a great chance of going all the way.
