John Herdman, New Zealand coach
There were a lot of tears in the changing rooms - there is a lot of frustration and real disappointment. My players performed incredibly well and they didn't deserve to go out in circumstances like these. But they can be proud of themselves. This was the best FIFA tournament that New Zealand's women have ever played. We wanted to make history here, but at least it can all be put down to invaluable experience. This squad is incredibly closely knit and has a great future ahead of it in terms of Germany 2010 and 2011.

Mo Marley, England coach
We never stopped believing in ourselves since we knew that that with the quality we had, the equaliser could come at any moment. New Zealand made life incredibly tough for us as they defended superbly. Now we're just happy we've progressed. It is an enormous achievement for us. This is one of the strongest teams that English women's football has ever had, and the fact that we were capable of getting back into the game in the 94th minute will give us confidence. Plenty of other teams in the past have used an experience like this to go on to greater things.
