Oleksandr Petrakov, Ukraine coach
It was a good game, the players completed their task well, that's the reason why we have earned this result. Viktor Kovalenko is an excellent player, who scored three goals today. He had a stress injury and there was a doubt to whether he could play at the World Cup. If he continues like this, he should end as top scorer here. It is a pleasure to be here and it's an honour to play against such great competitors. We wanted to finish first in the group because we have received great hospitality in Auckland and we didn’t want to leave!
Tab Ramos, USA coach
We played a type of game that we normally are not used to playing. It was an open game. We tried hard and did a good job considering that we kept a couple of players off today, like [Rubio] Ruben. We had to go and search for [the result] but I had to take the central midfielder [captain Emerson Hyndman] off, so we weren't playing at full strength at the end. You obviously want to come in first place, but any team we play now is gonna be a good team.
