Jorge Barcellos, Brazil coach
This was one of those matches which are decided on the basis of individual errors, because both teams were very evenly matched. In the first half, China played well but didn't take their chances. We had less of the possession in the first half, but during the break we changed our tactics around and the players made their quality tell in the second half.
