Reggio Calabria, Italy, September 27, 2010 - USA v Argentina press conference.

USA coach Alan Knipe: "I am very happy for the victory. I want to congratulate Argentina for the very good game they played today. They put us under pressure most of the match, especially with their very fast attacks. Our goal was to win and qualify for the next phase. But we must continue working to improve even more."

USA captain William Priddy: "It was a very difficult game. Argentina defended very well and put us in difficulty with their fast attacks. It is a team that has a great coach and good players. We know we had to fight each game from the beginning to the end if we want the victory."

Argentina coach Javier Weber: "First of all I want to congratulate the United States for the win. They are a tactical team and were stable and had a good race. We made too many mistakes too and they used it very well. The United States is the strongest team in the world. We played well. Now we have to think about the next step."

Argentina captain Rodrigo Quiroga: "We started the first set very well. We have made particular points in the stop. In the other three sets we played well, but we lost several counterattacks. We must continue working to improve. Now we think the next step. We hope to give the best ever against the other teams we face. We need to prepare well, because the teams we will face are the highest level."
