Ze Miguel, Portugal coach
An easy victory but that’s also down to the team, who wasted no time in putting the match to bed. We played well and attacked every ball, showing good fitness and preparation for the tournament. The aim is to give a repeat performance in the following games, which we will have to approach with the same spirit. Now it’s time to have a rest, regain our strength and come back with the same desire to win.

Rudis Gonzalez, El Salvador coach
Portugal were really very strong, they’re maybe the top European team. Psychologically we have to pick ourselves up straightaway, we lost a battle but not the war. Besides, a positive result against Oman would change everything, because the Argentinians are probably not at the same level as the Lusitanians. Although we practiced long and hard on our defensive plays, they didn’t work out.
