Luiz Felipe Scolari: "The tournament was not all bad. We had a bad defeat. With all the difficulties we reached the semi-finals. We are a hard-working team, we win together and lose together. The crash was also the coaching staff, the fans, it was overall, no one understood, and the team from Germany, which is good, took the opportunity."

Louis van Gaal: "I asked two players to take the first ball before ending up with Vlaar. I thought he was the best player on the pitch so should have confidence. I taught Romero [Argentina keeper] how to stop penalties, so that hurts. We were the club to bring him to Europe. He was a big talent, and someone who has the qualities to do that."
