USA coach Pia Sundhage
It felt great to play the first 45 minutes and then make a few changes and perform even better in the second half. I'm really pleased with the way we scored our goals and how we defended. It was a great start to the World Cup.

Korea DPR coach Kim Kwang-Min
As you know, we lost 2-0. I was pretty happy with the first half, but in the second half my players didn't have the energy. They were tired and couldn't put what we'd discussed into practise. They weren't physically fit enough for the 90 minutes, but they gave their all.

USA forward Abby Wambach
These three points were very important - to me they felt like seven. It's going to be tough against Sweden and Colombia though.
