"The game was going our way as we created many opportunities, especially in the second half. I'm proud of the players and still trust them now that we've qualified. Now we will face France and we must prepare for them; it will be strong and tough match."
*Marcelo Herrera, Costa Rica coach*

"I'm happy to qualify today, we have shown our ability to play. This win gives us confidence. We will play with Mali. For first time, I don't know if we were the best of them or worst, but we want to play our style. I think we have knowledge of African football after having faced South Africa in this group."
