Walter Perazzo, Argentina coach
"Our level was a bit under our first two matches but we did what we needed to win the match. It was a strange game, when we couldn’t score we had a lot of chances, and then we scored when we had not that many chances. We won two matches and we drew one, we scored four goals and didn’t concede a single goal to win a very tough group. If the substitutes scored, it’s also because the team started a good job and prepared the way for them. Finally, we’re happy to win this group and stay in Medellin."

Jo Tong Sop, Korea DPR coach
“In our three games, we showed a very strong spirit, but we also learned three lessons from three big teams. We are obviously sad to leave already the tournament. Our goal was to reach the second round, but most importantly, I’m sure these lessons will help us to grow, to improve and come back stronger in the future tournaments for these players. We never refused to play and we always tried to create chances. Unfortunately, a good goalkeeper and a lack of luck stopped us to score when we had the opportunities. We always started good but we lost concentration in some moments and mistakes cost us the goals that we conceded.”
