New Zealand coach Aaron McFarland
"We have got a taste for winning now. And I can’t ever remember a New Zealand team that has scored this many goals in a game, and for one player to get three, it’s a great thing. We weren’t expecting to win by such a big margin, but we have been working very hard to give ourselves a chance here in Mexico.”
Uzbekistan coach Alexei Aevstavljev
“We never played well during the game. In fact, this is one of the worst games I have ever seen this team play. We made too many defensive errors and even though it was a very hot day, this was not the main reason for our loss. The players were nervous and they lost their focus. We will try to fix the problems and do better next time."
