After the match against Argentina, Shawky Gharib commented on the team's performance and on some players: "When an Egyptian player loses focus, he becomes a problem. Argentina scored their only dangerous chance of the game. This is soccer, you have to take risks. We are still working, and we have a chance to qualify, we haven't lost hope. Mostafa Mohamed is a big star, and the top scorer of the team, and he would have made us stronger. But I won't use his absence as an excuse. I have Ahmed Yasser Rayan, the top scorer in the league, and I have Taher Mohamed, Ramadan Sobhi and Salah Mohsen."
Graham Arnold, after the loss to Spain, commented on his team's situation: "We have deep, fresh players ready to go. We have shown in the past that we can play different systems, different players and we have a lot of depth so you can't look at the negatives, I look at the positives. "I'm very, very proud of the players and the performance. "It was a fantastic effort against a nation and an obviously very good soccer team in Spain. I thought we did exceptionally well. We are here today with qualification in our own hands, so it's all up to us. We're not counting on anyone having to beat anyone else. I thought we defended fantastic, we can do better with the ball, of course, and we'll get better with that. I have no complaints, I'm extremely proud of the boys and again we have everything in our own hands. Let's keep smiling and enjoy this experience."
