Veljko Paunovic, Serbia coach
We’re delighted. We’ve achieved history for our country and we’ve also managed to get out of the so-called ‘group of death’, which makes the achievement even greater. We’re very happy but we’d also like to congratulate all our rivals in the group. We wish Mexico all the best for the future, and the same goes for Mali and Uruguay in their next games in the competition.

It’s something we worked on yesterday. We knew they were going to send in throw-ins like that but we couldn’t stop them from scoring with their first attempt. It came very early and it took the team time to adapt to the pitch. Then they went and scored another goal from a set-piece. I’m very proud of the boys all the same. They gave their all in the second half and never let their heads drop. This has been a tournament of set plays, and we’ve conceded four goals. We tried, but we weren't clinical enough.
