I think in today's match we were overwhelmed by Cubans: they were taller and stronger. Compared with the last matches, we played better and we've done our utmost against China.

Japan showed their velocity, risking their service. We won thank to our powerful attack.

Japan Head Coach Shoichi Yanagimoto

Cuba is a very strong team. Usually our tactic against them is trying to break their passing through our service, but today it didn't worked out.

Cuba Head Coach Antonio Perdomo

In the second and third set Japan made a lot of fakes, it was difficult for us to block them. Eventually we imposed our strength in attack.
