Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach
We looked comfortable out there today. We played well and we were vigilant in defence and when we were on the ball we created a lot of good chances. When we're in that form it's difficult to stop us. The players who came on did a good job for us. Fernando Torres did what he had to do and we all felt pretty comfortable with how we played. This is a team that wants to make history and we'll just have to wait and see if luck's on our side. At least we're through to the last eight now.
Carlos Queiroz, Portugal coach
Spain had more possession and it was no surprise they dominated play. It was a fair result when you consider the possession they had and the chances they created. We had a few chances of our own but we failed to take them, which was a shame. If we'd put them away, things could have been a lot tighter. We can feel proud of our performance because we went on the attack and the players fought to the end. They're pretty pleased with how they played and what we need to do now is come back even stronger.
David Villa, Spain forward
We're taking things step by step. Portugal pushed us all the way today but this was a big jump forward. We've beaten a very tough side and we have a lot of confidence in ourselves and in our potential. Scoring the winner was wonderful and I haven't had many games where I've felt better than this.
Gerard Pique, Spain defender
I'm delighted with the win. With the team we've got we can dominate any game and that's what we went out and did today. Fernando Llorente gave us an extra edge when he came on and we just had to get the win. Now we've got it, we can start thinking about Paraguay.
Eduardo, Portugal goalkeeper
I had a good game for sure but when it comes to World Cups individual performances aren't enough. It's the team that counts at the end of the day and it's really frustrating to concede a single goal and get knocked out of the World Cup. Portugal are known for being tight at the back but we ended up letting in a goal we never should have conceded. We had some great chances in the first half but Spain created the better openings after the break. It's a shame, but the dream is over for us.
Hugo Almeida, Portugal forward
I wasn't surprised at being taken off, but I was annoyed because obviously I wanted to stay on. I didn't feel tired but we're a team and we win and lose together. It's up to Carlos Queiroz to decide who to bring off and who to send on, but I thought I did my best. There's a squad of 23 and there's a coach who makes the decisions, and all we can do is try and do our best. The better side won, there's no doubt about that. Spain beat us fair and square but we can go home feeling proud of what we've done.
