Fernando Gonzalez, Coach of Colombia: We lost, so of cousre I’m not happy but I knew that Great Britain is a very good team. In the first half we weren’t a united team, we were just a group of single players and that was wrong. In the second half we played better.
Ricardo Vasconcelos, Coach of the Great Britain: I’m very happy not only for today’s win but because now we are playing in semi-finals. The match was far from easy because team of Colombia has a really good coach. We knew it gonna be hard.
