Americans promise better showing in second match against Dutch

Kevin Hansen sets up captain David Lee

Rotterdam, the Netherlands, June 13, 2009 - The Dutch and American teams are looking forward to their second match on this FIVB World League weekend in Ahoy Rotterdam.

The Dutch team took the first match from the Olympic Champion and 2008 World League winners 3-0. The teams will meet in the FIVB 'Match of the Week' on Sunday, to be broadcast live in countries around the world.

American captain David Lee said his team lacked information on the Dutch team in the first match. "We have more information for the second match which will benefit us. We will win tomorrow," Lee said.

American opposite Evan Patak said: "Today we did not play like we can. We will do everything to improve this tomorrow."

The Dutch team also expects a tougher match on Sunday. "We expect that the American team will be better tomorrow because they know our style of play now. We will see who will be the stronger team tomorrow," said Dutch coach Peter BlangĂ©.
