Adrian Coria, Paraguay coach
We started well but were forced to change things around after the red card. Things didn't go quite as we'd planned but the team never gives up and they fought for every ball. It was an emotional game and it had everything. It was a massive win for us and a great experience.

Miroslav Soukup, Egypt coach
It was a tough game. We played really well in the first half and got the equaliser after the sending off, but we suffered a loss of concentration in the second half and fell apart. It's very difficult to play football against a team like Paraguay. Congratulations to them for the win - they showed a fantastic will to win. I'm just sorry to our wonderful fans for today's defeat.
