Press Conference USA vs. Venezuela

Daymari Brito, Captain of Venezuela

“We are really happy with our performance today against a team like USA. We battled hard and hope to continue improving in the remaining games of this tournament.”

Kendall Bateman, Captain of USA

“We are satisfied with the way some of our subs came in and played today. We are going to keep playing hard. For many of players in our team this is their first international experience.”

Sergio Rivero, Head Coach of Cuba

“We have half of the players of this team competing today in Brazil and we don’t have a big population of volleyball players so it is difficult to replace them. Some of them are playing out of position and making a great effort.”

Paula Weishoff, Head Coach of USA

“We wanted to set the tone of the match since the beginning and we did that. They play a different system than us, so we made some adjustments. This team has been together only for a week so it has been hard to find a starting line-up. We will continue to play hard and hope for the best.”
