Portugal bullish about qualification for Final Phase

The press conference between Argentina and Portugal on Saturday

Portugal coach Juan Diaz: "Today’s match was different, since we played better than yesterday even though we still alternated some high and low moments. We still lack match rhythm and … trust, since World League is a competition at the highest level. The possibilities are still open and we will continue to work to reach our goals."

Portugal player Hugo Gaspar: It was a more even match, even tough Argentina was superior. This is a war and we lost some battles, but we still didn’t lose the hope to reach our goals.

Argentina coach Javier Weber: This was a more difficult victory. Portugal served very well and created difficulties to our reception. Today’s match was closer to the reality, since Argentina and Portugal have very similar teams. I am very happy since the players knew how to turn the things around after loosing the third set.

Argentina player Facundo Conte: I am very glad that we were able to sum six points in Portugal, that as a very competitive team. We will continue to work even harder to improve even more.
