Jorge Barcellos, Brazil coach
In the first half Marta didn't perform well because the New Zealanders were marking her so tightly but in the second half she was much better. Overall she was outstanding and all of the strikers did well - not just in terms of their long-range shooting, but also in the box. We have two days now to prepare for the China game. It will be a tough match.
