After the match, at a press conference, the coach of the Equatorial Guinea Girls, Esteban Becker acknowledged the great game played by his team and the captain, Ayonman. Coach Becker said “he has twenty-one high-quality players, and that for the upcoming match against Senegal, he might reserve some players who are slightly injured”.
