*Cameroon coach, Enow Ngachu *
It was a bad day for the Cameroon national team. We met a very good side, and we expected that. They used their experience to beat us and the Chinese team can create surprises in the future. This was a learning experience as our first appearance. We need to develop women’s football. We need good organisation and we also need to create as many clubs as possible. The day we prepare and organise very well, I think an African nation will one day win the World Cup. Some of players are very talented which is why they play outside of Africa. We just hope that with our performance many things will change things in Cameroon and in Africa.

*China PR assistant coach, Weiwei Chang *
All the players were wonderful, and put on a spectacular, resilient and brave performance. They fought like warriors for over 90 minutes and want to thank them all. In the second half we strengthened the wide areas to put pressure on Cameroon. Defence is the job of 11 players at times and was impressive, but our attack still needs some work. We [the coaches] believe in our players and they have confidence and motivation. We have made tremendous improvement in the past two or three years. This is a young squad full of energy which can reach higher goals in the future.
