Leonardo Pipino, Panama coach
We came here with the objective of winning our first match, but didn’t succeed. We are very sad about that. For us, the most important thing is that these players evolve physically and gain more international experience. All of our guys play for local clubs. They are good enough to play in the CONCACAF region, but internationally we lack the necessary experience.
Sellas Tetteh, Ghana coach
Our opponents surprised me today. I was in shock simply because at the World Cup you see such different standards of performance, and today Panama played very well. It was a hard-fought game and the slightly better side won in the end. Now we have to prepare for the Round of 16. Its going to be very tough now and our level of performance will need to rise. We have to try to work on our weaknesses.
