Peter Dedevbo, Nigeria coach
There are some matches that, although you expect to win, you can't manage to do so, and I'm a little bit dissapointed today. But it was a good fight between the two teams. I have to say that Mexico's goalkeeper, Cecilia Santiago, is impressive and produced a good performance today. Looking ahead to the next match I want to work on every position on the field - goalkeeper, defence, midfield, but the most important thing we need to improve on is our finishing.

Christopher Cuellar, Mexico coach
Mexico have played several times with Nigeria in several categories and we knew this was going to be a very physical game, so we told the girls not to back down. It was a tough match with chances for both sides and it's always nice to start with a positive result. Obviously it would have been better getting the three points, but starting a tournament with a draw was not bad either, especially when, like today, it's a tight match.
