Jan Versleijen, Australia coach: “We were 2-0 down after six minutes. Then 3-0 down after 13. We were already out by then. Spain know how to control the ball. They're a great side. It will be difficult for somebody to eliminate them. I think Spain, Colombia or Nigeria will win it. The World Cup's over now for us, but it was great experience for the players to be able to play in this tournament.”

Julen Lopetegiu, Spain coach: “We put on a brilliant performance. We knew we had to perform well because Australia are an excellent team. I made some changed to the team because some players were already on one booking, and we didn't want to risk losing them for the next match. Spain are one of the best sides in the last 16, but we won't underestimate anyone. We're very pleased to be staying in Manizales, because it's like a home away from home for us. The people, the fans are great.”
