Luiz Felipe Scolari, Brazil coach"Nobody expected such an emphatic result, not against the world champions. But let’s not get carried away. This is more than a title because we’ve shown that we’re on the right path and that we can now take a little more confidence with us as we travel down it. In 2004 I lost a home final with Portugal, which hurt me a lot, but life has given me this opportunity today. I also want to draw attention to the support the team had off the pitch. It’s a message for the whole of Brazil. We have to get along and stick together to make sure things move forward."

Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach"Obviously this defeat hurts, but I think deep down that we’ve had a good Confederations Cup. I’d rather take the positives away with me today. I’ve been with an exceptional group of players who have given their all in what have been a fantastic 28 days together. David Luiz’s goal-line clearance at the end of the first half was the difference between us drawing level and going 2-0 down, though there’s no point in talking about little details. Overall Brazil were the better side."
