Man of the match Aidan O'Shea hailed Mayo's win over Donegal as "sweet" but wants even more from the Connacht champions in their pursuit of the All-Ireland crown.
Mayo disposed of Donegal with the performance of the Championship so far, scoring a mammoth 4-17 to 1-10 and left the Tir Chonaill men in a state of disbelief in Croke Park as they surrendered the title.
O'Shea's domination of midfield and relentless energy was one of the highlights of a spectacular showing by Mayo.
He told RTÉ Sport: "It is a sweet win but it is only a quarter-final.
"We are only in August and we want to be there at the end of September.
"There is a massive game against Tyrone coming up, we will go back and look at the tape. There is definitely ways of improving on that performance again.
"We missed a few goal chances and we were slack in the last 20 minutes. It is something we have to work on. We are looking to try and get a complete performance in.
"I don't think we got that today. We were very, very good for the first 20 minutes and it set us up for a good win."
Aidan O'Shea performance 'the most complete by a midfielder....top drawer. A masterclass' says Ciaran Whelan #SundayGame— The Sunday Game (@RTESundayGame) August 4, 2013
The midfielder was sent off in the final minutes for a second yellow card after a high challenge but will not reflect too much on the dismissal.
"I don't think it was a yellow card," he stated.
"I felt he (Joe McQuillan) was a bit trigger happy with the yellow early on but he is there to make decisions.
"Thankfully I will not be suspended for the next game and we will just get on with it."
