*Mexico coach Leonardo Cuellar
I definitely didn’t like our beginning. We lost two many balls and took a while to settle but in the end we created opportunities. It was an open and attractive game for the fans. We haven’t reached our goal yet so we will continue to work over the coming days. We have in our mind that we can achieve something special here.

England coach Hope Powell
*I’m pleased we didn’t lose the game, disappointed we didn’t win it. If you feel you had opportunities to win the game then naturally you’re disappointed. The game was not easy going. It is a start but it would be great to continue from today. We felt as if we dominated the first half, but they took confidence from the goal.

*Mexico attacker Monica Ocampo
We achieved a great result today and we are now focussing on the next matches. I am very proud of the goal. We have a very good team and I am very proud of their support during this match.
