Gerd Zeise, Myanmar coach
We can leave this arena with our heads raise. We were a little bit unlucky, especially in the first half. I didn't see a better performance from the Americans, they only had more experience. I told [the American bench] that they were too clever for us and we must learn.
Tab Ramos, USA coach
We didn't play how we wanted to play, that's for sure. We found in front of us a very inspired team, a newcomer coming into the World Cup and they fought hard. They made us play ugly and it was difficult for us. I'm happy with the win but we're going to have to improve if we're going to go anywhere in this tournament. [Laughs] I can't really tell you what I said at half-time.
