Serve and defense were the key: Weber

Press Conference after the match Portugal vs Argentina (left to right) Argentina captain Rodrigo Quiroga, Argentina coach Javier Weber, moderator, Portugal coach Juan Diaz, Portugal player Flavio Cruz

Argentina coach Javier Weber: We played very well, mainly on our serve and in defense. I am happy with the victory since we never give up fighting.

Argentina captain Rodrigo Quiroga: It was a hard but good victory, since we knew how to overcome our adversities, starting with the travel itself to Portugal, and we were able to win against such a good team as Portugal.

Portugal coach Juan Diaz: Congratulations to Argentina. Both teams are very similar, but Argentina played better and created many difficulties for us in reception and defense. Later, when the match was finely balanced, our service errors prevented us from gaining any advantage.

Portugal player Flavio Cruz: Argentina is a very consistent team. They always put pressure on us and we were unable to reply properly, particularly as we failed on so many serves.
