Even though I am not Uruguayan, I have to say that I feel VERY proud of you guys...You have made us proud of being South American. And for those from other regions of the globe; who are just starting to taste success in soccer, ALWAYS, ALWAYS respect SouthAmericans who were the first world champions and is the region of the globe that has most world championships than any other. Go Colombia show what we are made of.

  • Spain Coach Gines Melendez (R) congratulates his players after winning the penalty shootout against Uruguay
"That was an unbelievable and spectacular match! Respect to Uruguay, they were fantastic. We also played well, but we made far too many errors at the end of normal time, although that's going to happen with lads of this age. At the end of the day, and taking the match as a whole, I think we deserved to win. We'll be very content and full of anticipation when we go to Lagos for the semi-final." Gines Melendez, Spain coach
