Ramiro Vifara, Colombia coach
We wanted to finish third, and we regret we didn't manage that. We played badly, and I think it was because we still hadn't recovered mentally from the heavy defeat to Switzerland in our previous game. But we leave Nigeria quietly satisfied, as the boys gave everything they had against Spain, one of the top teams in the world in any category. We did everything we could.  

Gines Melendez, Spain coach
I congratulate Colombia on their great performance in the tournament, although today I think they were a bit tired and we were well on top. We had the most possession and the best chances. We tried to set up chances for Borja as we wanted him to finish top scorer, but he was very tired so we had to replace him. We deserved our win and we leave the tournament very satisfied. Our Federation doesn't insist we win titles, but rather to train young talents to be future senior internationals. I think we've met that request.
