Puerto Rico blame lack of rhythm for defeat by Germany

Puerto Rican Jose Rivera tries to attack through the blocking of Georg Grozer

Puerto Rico captain Hector Soto: “We never got going and couldn’t find our rhythm. The Germans reached a certain game level and kept it for the rest of the match. It was a good match from their opposite (Grozer)”.

Germany captain Bjorn Andrae: “It was not a good match for both teams but we feel very happy for the victory”.

Puerto Rico coach Carlos Cardona: “Congratulations to Germany who played very well. We were not up to our game and our physical condition was below our level. We made mistakes we usually don’t. Mentally I hope we can recover for tomorrow’s match.”

Germany coach Raul Lozano: “Putting aside the performance, I am happy due to the importance of the match, because the match wasn’t beautiful. We improved our attack during the match and the serve, which was very bad in the first set, also was better. The team didn’t play relaxed but reached certain level.”
