Darren Bazeley, New Zealand coach
I’m incredibly proud of my team. There was enormous pressure on those young lads today and they dealt with it superbly. We put in a strong and very dominant performance in the second half. I’ve got an incredibly great bunch of guys in this side who all work extremely hard. Hopefully we can make history and get out of the group. At the very least, we should have done enough for our goal difference today to give ourselves a good chance of reaching the last 16. We’ll definitely be sitting nervously in front of the television tomorrow.

Gerd Zeise, Myanmar coach
I’m both very disappointed and disheartened, but you can’t expect to win any matches by playing the way we did. Our defence was a disaster – I saw so many mistakes. We simply weren’t ready for a big stage like the World Cup. The only way we could have survived was if every single member of the team played to the absolute best of their abilities, and unfortunately that wasn’t the case today.
