Portuguese Coach Moncho Lopez:
"The first words are to our captain José Costa, the most clever player I ever worked with, very compromised with all the coach work.
The fact we didn't win any game in the qualification hurts a lot when these players, coaches and federation members deserved more, because of the good conditions they gave me to do my job."
Belgium Coach Eddy Casteels:
"This was a typical Belgium game, with players afraid to qualify, nervous. It was an intense game, very physical. I respect how the Portuguese team handled the situation."
