Julen Lopetegui, Spain coach: “I believe that this match was very equal. We had a lot of luck to go on and get this result. We're very satisified with the result against a good Ecuador side. Ecuador were really hard to beat, they worked very hard. I have great players at my disposal. [Sergio] Canales is just one of them. He is one member of a squad in which everyone is important.”


Sixto Vizuete, Ecuador coach: “We're disappointed, but we have another opportunity to go through. Two-nil against a good team is nothing to be ashamed of, and it wasn't that score for very long. We're going to watch Costa Rica play [Australia], study their game and be prepared for them. It's a game we must win and we're confident we can do it. For an hour today we held our own with this Spain side, so we know we can compete. We'll be ready.”
