Callum West (GBR): "It was a tough match, Slovakia is truly a quality team. We gave it our all, but today, it wasn't enough for a smaller difference in the score. We made several mistakes that the best teams will capitalize on. I am still proud of the guys; they worked hard. We couldn't ask for more."

Róbert Alföldy (SVK): "We didn't want to underestimate a single second. At the beginning, it was challenging; the opponent was running well and disrupting our game. Until we scored the opening goal, we were nervous. Then things got going, the boys relaxed. After the first two goals, the players also made great passes, and we had more control over the ball. I think the result speaks for itself. We've finished the group stage, and now it's all about how we rest for tomorrow's semifinal."
