Poly Bonghanya, Congo DR coach
Germany are a very strong team and they proved that again today. Their players are all technically very gifted, and as a team they play some very nice football. It was a really big ask for us to get anything out of this game. Some of our top players weren't on top form today, and we were also pretty unlucky not to manage at least one goal.
Marin Meinert, Germany coach
I am very satisfied, particularly with how we played in the first half. We settled the outcome very early on, which was very important as Congo are tough opponents. Next we have to face Japan and that will be a tricky tie, since they are technically very strong and very well organised. I'm looking forward to the match as it will no doubt be interesting and full of attractive football.
