Brazil coach plays down No.1 status after Thai win

Brazil coach Ze Roberto rates Cuba as dangerous opponents on Sunday

Brazil coach Jose Guimaraes:
"We did well in serves and counterattacks. We have to think about Cuba tomorrow. They are always a tough match for us. Our goal here is to make the final.
(On the pressure on being No.1) "I don't think we are No.1, we are in a group of very good teams. We need to change the mentality of our fans who think that second place is the first place of the losers."

Brazil captain Fabiana Claudino:
"We played well in defence. We had good serves and effective blocks today."

Thailand coach Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai:
"This was a good game for our team. We learned a lot from playing the best team in the world. They are good in preparation and technique. Our goal was to make the second round. We will take it step-by-step now. Next week we also have to play in the Asian Games so I need to take care of my players."

Thailand captain Apinyapong Wilavan:
"We tried to play our best and limit our errors. Brazil are a very strong team. We tried to play a fast game to counter their height. They have such tall players and are good at blocking."
