Peru coach Mauro Marasciulo: "This match was very difficult for us. We recognised this would be a difficult match for us but I think all our players did a good job and I’m satisfied with their performance. We have many young players and they did well, so in that sense I’m satisfied."
Peru captain Mirtha Uribe: "Congratulations to Kenya. We saw they were improving in every match and all their players are getting better.
