NOR-GHA: Post-match quotes

Bjarne Berntsen, Norwaycoach
I'm very satisfied. I have been coach of the national team since 2005 and in that time we have never scored more than four goals before in a match, so I'm obviously very pleased to have got seven. Both Denmark and China (potential quarter-final opponents) are well organised and work very hard. But we are confident in our chances and are delighted to have qualified not only for the quarter-finals but also for the Olympics as one of the three best European countries. It's very important that we improve, though, because I don't think we played our best football today, we were certainly too casual in defence.

Isaac Paha, Ghana coach
We have players who are very young and playing for the first time at a World Cup, so it is all an experience for them. I believe that at this stage of our development it is more important to participate and improve than aim at getting the cup. When a team is young, they need to rub shoulders with other older teams. That takes them to another level. As we keep building and playing other stronger teams, it helps us to build a strong team of our own.

Ragnhild Gulbrandsen, Norwaystriker
Of course, it was a great match for me, scoring three goals and my team qualifying for the quarter-finals. It was fantastic. I'm very surprised to be top scorer but there are some more games to play and I'm hopeful of scoring some more goals for this team.
