Fernando Santos, Portugal Manager: “I am a coach who is satisfied when I win and when the team plays as we rehearsed. We could have scored one or two more in the first half. In the second half, the pace dropped; the players are not machines. Switzerland created some problems, but we always found the right solutions.”

Rúben Neves, Portugal midfielder: “We scored a lot of goals, created a lot of chances, played good football. There are always things to improve. That’s what we’re going to focus on, but I think it was an excellent performance.”
