"Today, I gave a chance to a lot of players who had not played or were substitutes. I am satisfied with their performance, but I was hoping to see more from them. Our team wanted to win this game. We do not try to draw. But in the end I am satisfied as finishing ahead of Brazil and England is a great achievement for us," Choi Jin Cheul, Korea Republic coach.
"The first half was balanced, but we were too timid. I was much more pleased with the second period where we had many chances, but we did not have success. It's hard to have particular expectations here, especially with U-17 teams. What we knew is that our group was difficult. We will now have to wait," Neil Dewsnip, England coach.
