01-Oct, start time: 13:10, end time: 14:45 - Attendance: 4,000
Tomas Aldazabal - Captain of Cuba team
"We didn't play as we should have done, so it was easy for them to win. Both teams were clear, so there isn't much to say."

Reinder Nummerdor - Captain of Netherland team
"We started playing very sharp. In the third set we played very relaxed, but then, we talked about improving our play. "

Bert Goedkoop - Head Coach of Netherlands
"I'm proud we could win in the most difficult group, and reach to this stage. We knew we were classified, but we wanted to play well this match to make it more sportive and competitive. I just want my team to play well. If we can do it, we will be among the high positions."

Eliseo Ramos - Head Coach of Cuba
"We have improved a little, but not enough. There were players who didn't fulfill their work. We don't have to lose our hope and I congratulate the Dutch coach."
