Brazil feel proud despite loss to USA

The press conference after the match with Fabiana Claudino, coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes (Brazil), Hugh McCutcheon and Jennifer Tamas (USA)

Brazil captain Fabiana Claudino:

Though the match didn’t go as we expected, we fought to the end. We are proud of our performance.

 

Brazil coach Jose Robeto Guimaraes:

The game was very close and very balanced. I am impressed by the Americans’ determination. But, despite the loss, I am proud of my team.

 

USA captain Jennifer Tamas:

A five-setter against Brazil was really tough. But before the match we knew it would be a close match. We played really hard tonight. We will come back tomorrow and try to play the best volleyball.

 

USA coach Hugh McCutcheon:

It was a very difficult match. Both teams played hard. There are some great hits, some great rallies. It was very close. I'm very happy, but we understand that we have a lot to do. Brazil taught us a lot tonight.
