Jitka Klimkova, New Zealand coach
I'm really happy with the match, my team put in a great performance. We wanted them to be really focused and also very physical, and they put that into practice really well. We're feeling very comfortable here and FIFA has done a lot of good work in terms of organising the event. Costa Rica can be proud of this World Cup.

Julio Gomez, Paraguay coach
It was a very entertaining game between two well-matched teams, with a lot of skill on display. Both sides really put in a shift. We're happy enough with a draw to get our World Cup campaign under way. The first match in a tournament like this is always tough, but they did well out there. My team put in a really good performance and I hope that they go on to enjoy this World Cup.
