FIVB Men's World Championship Japan 2006
Press Conference
Canada coach Hoag thanks Winters and Lewis

Canada coach Glenn Hoag talks during a TTO


Head coach Glenn Hoag: Both teams played well today. The Korean team has a strong defense and to fight against a team like Korea we needed to have patience. It was a very close match and you couldn’t really see any difference. Thanks to Frederic Winters and our libero Daniel Lewis, we could win the game.

Captain Murray Grapentine: It was really important game for both teams in terms of
moving into the second round. Our team started really slow but we found our game later on. (Frederic) Winters played especially well and we want to keep our level high for tomorrow.

Frederic Winters: Korea were a frustrating team to play against and we tried not to give many points to them and we did our best to do that today. We usually do well with our blocking and today’s game proved that.

South Korea

Head coach Ho Chul Kim: We played better than yesterday and both of the teams played very well today. But we have lost two matches so it’s a little bit hard to go to the next round, but we’ve got to turn our mind to the remaining games. There seemed to be something missing in our game – a lack of strength, maybe.

Captain In Jung Who: We did our best today and it was a very close game. We look
forward to the next game now and hope we can do our best.

Kyoung Min Ha: Today’s match didn’t go as well as we hoped. Our blocking wasn’t very good and what we have to do is look back at today’s game and get prepared for the next game.
