"To be honest this is not the correct result. Mali was stronger and played fantastic, beautiful football. I can only congratulate the coach, the team and the federation. They played aggressive and technically strong. But I also have to congratulate my team. It defended quite well and tried everything. The did it well. Our philosophy is to have the ball but today our opponent was too strong. Of course we are satisfied with this point," Bob Browaeys, Belgium coach

"Today we had bad luck. We created many chances but we didn’t score. Belgium defended well, especially in the second half. They closed the spaces and for us it was more difficult to find the room to create more chances. Thinking of goal scoring we are normally really effective - what we showed at the African Championship. Nevertheless we can be really proud about our perfomance today," Baye Ba, Mali coach
