Dany Ryser, Switzerland coach
Today's a historic day for Switzerland. We're world champions for the first time. I'm thrilled with this title as it's the culmination of many years of hard work. During the break I told the lads that Nigeria couldn't keep up the same tempo as the first half, and that proved to be the case. We took our chances and came out on top. Hopefully these youngsters will go on to make the senior team for [Brazil] 2014 and, who knows, maybe even reach similar heights then.

John Obuh, Nigeria coach
The defeat hurts, but I thank God for having made it to the final. I'm not pleased with the result, but we’ll learn from it. We did a good job out there but the Swiss showed how strong they were. My lads did all they could and hopefully they'll have oppontunities in the future. Have I any regrets? No, not at all. I always look on the positive side of things and my experience with this team is no exception. We should be proud of what we've done.
