"We had a good start, but Mexico defended well and we had problems controlling the game. But in the second half the game was more balanced and the Mexican goalkeeper had a remarkable match. Overall, I’m happy with the result and with my team performance. We kept our options of qualifying open and now it’s in our hands," Tony Vidmar, Australia coach.

“It was a tough match against a team that defended really well. We were unlucky in the first half, when we had good chances. If we had converted one, the result would had been very different, but Australia knew our style of play and how to stop us. In the end, it’s a fair result, and it’s not bad because we have one more point," Mario Arteaga, Mexico coach.
