Gilles Eyquem, France coachIt was a difficult match, as we had expected. It was not the best performance the team has produced here, but my players showed a lot of enthusiasm and deserved their medals. Winning the bronze medal is not a disappointment. It was very important for us and it is an award for my players. We played well during the group phase and the girls met our expectations.

Hwang Yong-Bong, Korea DPR coach 
I am not satisfied with the performances of my players, especially with the performances of my defenders. But the team can learn a lot from this match. I am happy that we could stay until the end of the tournament and happy with the overall performance at the tournament. Our players are still young and most can play at the next FIFA U-20-Women’s World Cup. Hopefully we can qualify for that one.
