Uzbekistan coach Aleksey Evstafeev
“I am very happy and proud at what we have achieved today. This was a great victory for us and to reach the second round is a dream come true. We played very well today and scored two goals after creating a good amount of chances. I hope that we can keep up the form in our next game. We are also happy to be staying here in Torreon, because the public has supported us very well here.”

Czech Republic coach Josef Csaplar
“This is very disappointing for us. We really wanted to win and move on to the next round, but I am still satisfied with what my players have done here in Mexico. They are young boys and they will learn from the errors they made here at this tournament. We were better in our first two matches than we were tonight. We will hope for better things in the future and come back stronger next time.”
