Korea Republic-Ghana: Quotes

Sellas Tetteh, Ghana coach
It was a great match and it must have been nice to watch for everyone. For us though it was a very difficult match. I have to pay tribute to Korea Republic; they gave us a very tough match. They pass the ball well and they have tremendous energy. If they'd have been a bit more clinical, it would have been even more difficult for us. Coming out of the extra time against South Africa and a change of venues, I was delighted with the way my players responded.

Hong Myung-Bo, Korea Republic coach
I'm delighted with the performance of my players, but I'm not happy with the result. I thought we were very unlucky. Today, I thought we showed just how good a team we are - and this tournament has been excellent for the future development of my players. Ghana's strikers have great individual skills and strengths and they took advantage of our deficiencies. But I can't fault my players for effort, they gave everything.
