Bashir Hayford, Ghana coach
It was a tough game and we lost to the better side. We were dominated the whole match. When you face a good team, you just have to face up to it. Winning a game, it’s capitalising on opponent’s mistakes, and we made more mistakes than them. Now we have to accept the result, quickly put it aside and raise our morale.

Hwang Yong Bong, Korea DPR coach
Our goal was to have six points before the last group match, so we can have our destiny in our hands. I’m happy with the victory but we have to improve a lot of things. It was not a game as easy as the score says. We didn’t produce a bad performance, but we could have a done better with all the opportunities we had.
