Gustavo Ferrin, Uruguay coach: "We knew we were in for a very tight and difficult game because of their tactics. They never came out for the win, or at least they did it in a way that made life difficult for us. These three points are so valuable. We had a lot of respect for Jordan and they showed out on the pitch how good they are. It's great to have won and stay unbeaten but we're taking this one match at a time. It was very hot out there and that made a difference on the players. We had to make a few changes because of tiredness."

Jan Poulsen, Jordan coach: "I'm very satisfied with my team's performance today. After seeing Uruguay's first game we knew how good they were and we managed to cause them lots of problems. They didn't have the fluency they had against Spain. We had chances to equalise but we couldn't put them away. Even so we still managed to hit the post, and as a coach you can't do anything about that. We'll just have to work on being sharper in the opposing box."

Edinson Cavani, Uruguay forward: "The goal was a move we'd been practising in training. Luckily I managed to keep the ball down and it went in. As a striker it's very important to score because it helps you stay sharp."

Raed Fraeh, Jordan midfielder: "We're very pleased with our performance and work rate, but we didn't have any luck. I thought we played well but we hit the woodwork three times. I'm sure we can do better in our next game."
