"We are a team that has a real fighting spirit, in that we can say we are a team of rugby, but we know how to play football. We developed our performance after that loss against France. Today we were much better and we got the win in the final moments, we definitely deserved it. I thank the players for their faith in themselves. To play with Brazil this is a dream and we will try to do everything we can," Danny Hay, New Zealand coach.

"It was a fatal loss, we didn't offer as good a match today as we played in the first two games. We made a mistake by changing some of the players, we were thinking we were going to face Brazil in the second round before we had made sure of qualifying. Now we will wait for the rest of the results to know our destiny," Carlos Jara, Paraguay.
