Portugal Headcoach Carlos Seixas:
"We played strong defense in the first half. Sweden was stronger in the second half. But the qualification for us didn't start with this game, it will start in the nex game."
Portugal Player Paula Muxiri:
"When we don't score it makes things difficult. We were well prepared but our procentage was way too low to win today."
Sweden Headcoach Lars Johansson:
"I suspect that my players were nervous coming into today's game. Portugal did a good job defensively. We wanted to run but they slowed us down. I think we all were waiting for our shots to fall and to get into a flow. And eventually it all came togheter. All my players who were asigned to guard Muxiri did a good job."
Sweden Player Frida Eldebrink:
"I did feel the pressure of being expected to win. The first half was frustrating. We felt that we were the best team out there but it didn't really show on the scoreboard in the first half. I am satisfied with the second half when I got some looks from three point range and hit them."
