Ravshan Khaydarov, Uzbekistan coach
Germany is one of the best teams in this tournament and they deserved the result today. Germany are a very skilled team and they play a very organised but relaxed game. In the first half we had a chance. Our counter-attacking tactics were working well and we showed great concentration. The second half was more difficult, our players started getting nervous and then we started losing. After today, and Fiji’s result against Honduras, our chances of getting through to the next round are slim but we will keep working hard.

Frank Wormuth, Germany coach
I'm very proud of my team. Uzbekistan played very deep and we found it very difficult to break through and finish. We needed a lot of patience for this match and we had it, but it was a deserved win. Our second goal was the key to our win today. We find our self-confidence in our own matches and are not comparing ourselves to other teams. We are through to the next round of this tournament, but no matter what place we get, I will be proud of my team.
