Ivan Edu Salvador (Equatorial Guinea), Man of the Match:

“I am very happy for this group, we have gained experience, we went to get this precious victory which validates the fantastic work. To qualify in ⅛ in a group where there is Algeria, Cote d’Ivoire, it’s magnificent. »

Juan Micha Obiang, Equatorial Guinea coach:

“We knew that the match against Sierra Leone was going to be difficult but the main thing was to score the ticket for the round of 16. We worked every day to be efficient, it is a validation of what we have learned. It is a collective victory for a group that lives well. This is an extraordinary qualification for Equatorial Guinea. I dedicate my victory to all African technicians and coaches who seek to enhance their experiences. »

John Keister, Sierra Leone coach:

“We have regrets even if we have made progress, we had to transform the try, we thought we were going to get a diet after the excellent match against Côte d’Ivoire. We are fine with this generation of transition, we behaved well. We are going to get to work, form a young team. We want to qualify for the next editions.”
