Dale Mitchell, Canada coach: "We will prepare ourselves for the Congo game and do everything we can to win it and see where we stand after that. There has been a lot of expectation heaped on these boys and they have given a lot of time and effort into getting themselves ready to play at this level. We have had some success in friendly matches but they are not the same as playing against the best countries in the world at this age group."

Paul Gludovatz, Austria coach: "I am still full of emotion and it is hard for me to find the words to analyse this game. I would like to thank everybody again for building this great atmosphere around the team. We were a bit lucky in the end with the goalscoring opportunity that Canada missed but you need this kind of luck. We had some problems at the beginning and we didn't really play for the first 25 minutes but later we were much better."

Simeon Jackson, Canada forward: "My miss was really disappointing because that one could have got us the equaliser. I saw the goalkeeper coming out and I tried to get it round him but I placed it wide."

Rubin Okotie, Austria goalscorer: "This was the highlight of my career and now everything is possible at this tournament. I only knew that I would play on the morning of the game and it was a good response after the chance I wasted in the first match."

Michael Madl, Austria defender: "The heat was difficult but it was the same problem for both teams. The chance Canada missed at the end was the same as the one I missed against Congo, so we had a little bit of fortune there. I didn't even realise what was happening."
