    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Portugal Coach Carlos Queiroz: It was a great display with good goals and the right attitude. We needed a game like this, but we have to remember that we've not won anything yet. The most important thing is to secure qualification. We'd seen some North Korean matches, like the one against Brazil, and we felt that we should make a few changes. So we decided to put our faith in these players. We proved that all our players are ready to play their part.

      • Korea DPR Coach Kim Jong Hun: Our players did all they could, but we tactically collapsed and, all of a sudden, we were no longer able to stop the Portuguese. As head coach of the team, I feel like this is my fault, as I wasn't able to pass the proper strategy on to the players. The Portuguese simply became more and more aggressive as the match went on and after we conceded the first goal we lost the balance between our defence and offense. Our players started to panic and we could no longer defend in the right way.

      • Korea DPR Midfielder An Yong Hak: Our tactical plan didn't work for us today. We were too attack-minded and conceded a lot of goals. And once we started playing even more openly, we ended up letting the Portuguese score seven times. The rain didn't affect us. Our problem was that we set our stall out to attack too much and that weakened us.
