Sellas Tetteh, Ghana coach
It was a very difficult game for us, but the first match in a tournament is always tough and it takes a while to find your rhythm. Congratulations to Austria for a really strong performance; it was clear that this team has plenty of quality. Having said that, it didn’t surprise me as every side that qualifies for a World Cup has earned the right to be here. Everything is now open in our group after the first two games both ended in draws. Next up is a tricky match against Argentina, which we can hopefully win.
Andreas Heraf, Austria coach
We were well prepared. We watched Ghana frequently beforehand and carefully analysed their play, which meant we knew almost everything about our opponents. The team followed our gameplan perfectly and we were closer to making it 2-0 or 3-0 than to Ghana scoring the equaliser. It was almost an unbelievable performance against a side who have come here with the aim of becoming world champions. My lads are a little downhearted in the dressing room, which is madness – but it shows the great ambition within the team.
