Hugo Tocalli, Argentina coach: "I would like to congratulate Chile and Jose Sulantay, whose work over the last four years has produced a side up there with the best in the world. I'm pleased with the result, but not with the team's performance in the early stages. Why aren't I smiling? I've lost three players for the final: two after picking up yellow cards and one through injury. That said, I'm not surprised we're in the final. When we set off from Buenos Aires, all we wanted was to play the kind of football Argentinian fans love. We're doing just that."

Jose Sulantay, Chile coach: "We thought it would be a normal game, but we went down to ten men very early. Despite that, I think that we played well and managed to rejig the team's shape. We had to use two players, [Mauricio] Isla and [Alexis] Sanchez, who haven't been able to train recently. That, against the world champions, can prove costly. Argentina showed how good they are and I think they deserve to win this tournament."

Mauricio Isla, Chile midfielder: "Medel's sending off completely changed the game. That, plus Argentina's early goal, turned the match into an uphill struggle for us. We gave it our all out on the pitch, and even with nine men we didn't give in. I don't think they are more of a team than we are."

Matias Cahais, Argentina defender and captain: "This group of players proved once more that they are ready and able to fulfil the objective we've set for ourselves. I'm sad about the yellow card, I didn't want to miss the final of such a big tournament. Now I'll have to follow the game as a supporter, and I know that my fellow squad members are more than capable of filling in for me."
