Netherlands-Iran: Quotes

Albert Stuivenberg, Netherlands coach

It was a disppointing result for us because at least we wanted a point out of this match. I don't want to use the circumstances as an excuse, its clear that it is very tough on our boys but I don't think that is the reason we lost this match. I must say we started very well as we did the previous two matches but we missed our chances and Iran came bacck into the game.

Ali Doustimehr, Iran coachThe team followed the instructions of the coaches. My wish is that one day my team will play like the Netherlands team because they have very talented players. It is an honour for us to win this group because Netherlands are at the top of world football. It is an honour for me and my players to have won this match, and it is my best experience as a coach.
