Jan Versleijen, Australia coach
To lose 3-0 is very disappointing. I expected a different game to the one against the Czechs and was also hopeful of a different result. In fact, we did get a different game and played much better. At half-time, you're thinking that 1-0 shouldn't be a big obstacle, and in the second half we raised our game and tried to get an equaliser. But one of our subs gets himself sent off after five minutes on the pitch and it's always tough to play with ten men.

Ronald Gonzalez, Costa Rica coach
I'm delighted. We tried to do the best we had with the players at our disposal and to put them in the right positions. We didn't want to defend the whole game but rather use counter-attacks to score some goals. Fortunately, this worked out well for us.
