Nigeria coach Manu Garba
It's a huge disappointment. We carved out the better chances in the first half and we should have led at the break. The first 45 minutes reflected what we're capable of. We simply made two mistakes that cost us dearly in the second period. All in all we played our part in a really great match and I'd like to congratulate Brazil on their victory; they're a very good team.

Brazil coach Rogerio Micale
We had expected to face a really good side in Nigeria and we weren't mistaken on that front. We started very well, but then the opposition gradually got on top and prevented us from playing our game. We shored things up in the middle of the park again in the second half and then looked to exploit the wings, which paid dividends.
