Dominant Germany leave Sorg smiling

Marcus Sorg said "it was important we were in control" after Germany overwhelmed Austria, Andreas Heraf acknowledging the victors had proved too strong.

Marcus Sorg, Germany coach
I don't think it was our best performance, but it was a very good performance in a game where we knew we couldn't afford to make any mistakes. I liked the effort we showed from the off; they wanted to score. I'm very pleased with my team's performance – it made me proud.

We know a loss like this hurts but they should be proud what they've achieved here in Hungary
Andreas Heraf

We wanted to dominate the game. It was very important we were 2-0 up at half-time; in a knockout game anything can happen, so it was important that we were in control and had that cushion at the interval.

In a knockout game, anything is possible. If you have a negative moment you have to correct it right away – you don't get a chance. It was important that we started positively and carried that through all the way.

Andreas Heraf, Austria coach
Nothing went wrong; Germany were too strong for us today. We knew that they have a great team. At the World Cup, they won 4-0 against Portugal and 7-1 against Brazil, so they're a big football country at senior level and with youth national teams too.

For us it's a big success to get to the semi-finals and the [FIFA U-20 World Cup]. We knew that if everything went [for us] we would perhaps have a chance to get to the final, but from the first minute we showed them too much respect. We weren't in the duels; their strength, power and technical quality meant they were too strong.

We had one good chance when we pressed the goalkeeper. Had that gone in and we'd gone 1-0 up maybe we'd have started to fight for the result, but at 2-0 down it was nearly gone and at 3-0 it was already finished.

I told the players to keep their heads up. We achieved a lot here in Hungary; we got to New Zealand, we got to the semi-finals and no one imagined that. We know a loss like this hurts but they should be proud what they've achieved here in Hungary.
