Held at New Jersey's Red Bull Arena with 11,024 observers in attendance, Greek team coach Fernando Santos stated, "Normally, we score...It's not a relief (to score). I would say we're satisfied because we capitalized on the opportunities that we made", according to Fox News.

He added, "Today we had the opportunities and we scored. The other games we had some opportunities, but unfortunately we didn't score." The Greek team held a lead during the game's entirety.

Bolivia coach Xabier Azkargota described, "In the first 20-25 minutes of the game we made a couple of mistakes, especially in defense...After that we started doing better, but Greece was attacking through the sides".

Greece is scheduled to open the World Cup with a match against Columbia on June 14th. The Hellenic team will then go against Japan and the Ivory Coast in Group C.
