*John Herdman, Canada coach
*It was a good start to the tournament for Canada. We had double the amount of possession they did and outshot them by double. The girls have now had that experience of coming out and playing in front of 50,000 people, and that is not easy. Some of the players that came on really stood up. We gave the crowd something to cheer about [at the end], which was really cool.
Hao Wei, China PR coach
Overall I was very happy about our team performance and I believe our team will be even better in the next match. It is a pity to lose in this way [with a late goal] but within a couple of days we can successfully adjust our mindset, I have no doubt about that.
