Uzbekistan coach Aleksey Evstafeev
"We are very happy with the victory, and we plan to do our best in the next game to take another stride at these finals. Against Australia, we did what we had to do both in the attack and on defence, and were thus able to score four goals. We are sad to leave Torreon, which has been our second home. We are really glad for our fans and know that some of the fans will follow us to Monterrey. We hope to be greeted by Monterrey's fans as we were here in Torreon."

Australia coach Jan Verslijen
"I want to congratulate the Uzbekistan team. They deserved this victory and were very organised. We knew it was going to be a very hard game and our players would have to control their nerves. The main factor for losing the game was the tough opponent and the weather, but I don’t want to use that as an excuse."
