Quotes: Brazil-Australia

Vadao, Brazil coach It came down to a simple little thing: losing the ball in midfield. We had controlled the match, especially in the second half. But we weren’t capable of finding an equaliser after conceding the goal. We’re convinced that we had the right attitude. Physically speaking, I felt as if we were one of the top teams in the tournament. Tactically, we also appeared to get things right. We just couldn’t find the goal we needed against Australia.

Alen Stajcic, Australia coach The players stuck to their tasks well, demonstrating good execution speed and a strong mental attitude. It’s a huge moment for us, but I’m hopeful that we’ll experience even bigger moments in the near future. We want to go as far as possible in this tournament. Thinking about what might happen next is actually very exciting. We’re very happy to have beaten a potential Women’s World Cup winner like Brazil. It was amazing to see how much the team were up for the fight today. I’m extremely proud of them.
