Diego Aguirre, Uruguay coach
It's not normal to see six shots hit the woodwork, but I was delighted with the way we created so many chances. I was delighted that Santiago Garcia scored after he was so unlucky so many times, especially with the penalty. I think overall, we played better than we did against England, but the opposition was very different. Uzbekistan didn't play well, but we took advantage of that. It's our dream to reach the final, we've been working for the past 18 months to achieve it.

Akhmad Ubaydullaev, Uzbekistan coach
Before the game, I said to that Uruguay were the strongest team in the group and they proved that today. I have no complaints about our red card. Before we came to this tournament, we discussed the virtues of good discipline and I was disappointed. But it wasn't just that, we made a lot of mistakes and we'll work on putting them right.
