Horst Hrubesch, Germany coach
I have to thank my players. They deserve all my respect. I have always told my team to have fun out there, and that's just what they did today. My guys really wanted to win. That said, I'm not totally satisfied, especially with our first-half performance. We missed a few chances, but after we drew level at 2-2 I know we'd get one more chance.

Samson Siasia, Nigeria coach
It's hard. We scored twice for the first time in the tournament but it still wasn't enough. At the end we were a man up but we were still having problems. When you lead twice, you need to preserve that lead, and we didn't do that. My team were too disorganized to keep their shape.
