Bob Bradley, USA coach
In an early play Birsa slipped in the gap and hit a great shot. Then we were already pushing for a goal and they hit us for a well-timed counter. This team still understands how to fight for 90 minutes. This is something we've seen time and time again. A lot of emotion went into the second half, and the result keeps us going until the last match.
Landon Donovan, USA midfielder and Budweiser Man of the Match
I am proud of our guys, I don’t know that there are many teams that would have responded in that way to going two goals down. We said (at half-time) if we don’t believe we can do it, then let’s not go back out. We can’t keep putting ourselves in holes like that. We have one more chance against Algeria and we are still alive. Emotionally we have to get up again for a difficult game against Algeria.
Matjaz Kek, Slovenia coach
It was a great match but it shouldn't have happened that we made such dumb mistakes in the second half. It was a really tough match and my team showed they were of high quality. We gained a point today and we are in a very good position. Now we need to recover to prepare for England.
