Marcello Frigerio, Equatorial Guinea coach
This was a very tough match which we expected. Australia has very fast players, they are a very good team and a very settled team and we knew it would be very difficult today and the most important thing is that we played the way we played and we made a good impression. 

Tom Sermanni, Australia coach
We are pleased that we won and that we are still in the competition. We made the game a little bit more difficult for ourselves than we needed to at times. It was a game of contrasts, we played some excellent football and created great chances and at other times we made some very poor mistakes which could take five years off my life expectancy!  

Lisa De Vanna, Australia forward and player of the match
I think as a team we could have done a little bit better in terms of our performance but at the end we got the three points and that is what is important.

Karen Espelund, Match Commissioner, concerning the hand ball in the penalty area
Gaal Gyoengyi, the referee, told me after the game that she was sorry that she missed that incident. She expressed her deep sorrow.
