 Argentina Coach Camilo Soto: 

“It was difficult to play against a team we knew nothing about beforehand but it was a good one. I am happy because it is important for the team to win. What is important for me is to read the game, to put good solution and play it well technically.

Argentina Captain Matias Sanchez: 

“It was a long match and it was difficult to say who will win. We had a lot of problems because the players were suffering after yesterday’s difficult match but we are happy to be the winners.”

Salim Bauhalla Algeria Coach: 

“I think Argentina is a very good team as they are playing in harmony as if they have training together for 4 or 5 years. We also lost to Russia yesterday and today to Argentina but this is not the end as I think both teams will reach the finals. What is more important is that we are improving from one match to the other.”

Abdel Raouf Hamimes Algeria Captain: 

“It was a very strong match and the Argentineans had the upper hand from the beginning .We were unable to defend back. We tried but we were unable to reach their level. Our objective is to gain experience from every match no matter if we are losers or winners.”
