We did well against a very well organized defence - Weber

Press Conference of the match Argentina vs. Mexico

Argentina coach Javier Weber: "I'm happy for the performance of my team. We played well especially in the first two sets. We did well against a very well organized team in defence. In the third set Mexico has reacted and put us in difficulty. We have made several mistakes and we did not maintain the right concentration. In the fourth set we found our tactical balance, especially we were able to score points on offence and with the block. We are a young team, but with many talents. Tomorrow against the United States I am sure the team will do better."

Argentina captain Rodrigo Quiroga: "It was a very tough game. Mexico has defended very well, giving us problems in the third set. Then we lost concentration. In the fourth set we have been patient and we found our way to play well." 

Mexico coach Jorge Azair: "First of all I want to congratulate Argentina for the very good game. Today we played to win. The difference with the previous match against the United States was determined by lack of correct knowledge of our opponents. Argentina we played against a few times and knew little of their game. We made mistakes especially in the serves. We tried to win but the speed of the game of Argentina put us in difficulty. I hope that tomorrow our team will play a good match to continue in the World Championship."

Mexico captain Gerardo Contreras: "I congratulate Argentina. It is a really strong team with great international experience. It always is an honor to play against them. Tonight we did not have enough strength to win. Last evening we played a better match, because we know better as the USA team players."
