Andreas Heraf, Austria coach
Our opponent was too strong for us today. They were physically extraordinary and their speed was extraordinary too so we had problems in these two departments. They studied us very well from our group games. The most important thing in football is to get the second ball and they had all the second balls, while we had none. We knew that we probably could not stop them. To get to the Round of 16 is a great thing for a small country like us. We know exactly what our team can and cannot do, and when you get to the last 16 it is clear that you will face some very good teams.
Ravshan Khaydarov, Uzbekistan coach
I think today we deserved this result. The players showed their full potential and executed our tactics well. After the match I told my players 'thank you, but this is not enough', we've only matched our performance from 2013. Of course we came to improve on this result and all the players know about it. We will work hard and I hope we can go one better and reach the semi-finals this time.
