“This match was very important for the team. I think we were better in the first half, but in the second we made some mistakes, such as that by our goalkeeper. In the next match we will be more awake in defence and we have to increase our concentration and attack. We are going to prepare for the next game or we'll have to leave the World Cup," Korea DPR coach, Yon Kwang Mu.
 
“It’s a very important victory, even in Russia’s history. We have prepared for this moment and today we managed to follow that with our victory. We created lots of goal chances, we could’ve scored even more goals. We will follow with our idea, and work hard on improving what we’ve already worked on," Mikhail Galaktionov, Russia coach.
