It was disaster for Puerto Rico: Soto

Setter Lukasz Zygadlo is receiving the chance to play as a regular under coach Andrea Anastasi and is producing good results

Hector “Picky” Soto, captain of Puerto Rico: “It was a disaster and not what we had in mind. I don’t have another word to describe it. We didn’t play the way we practiced during the week.”

Michal Bankiewicz, captain of Poland: “We are happy because we won a very important game for us. I think tomorrow’s game will be a tough one because I am sure that Puerto Rico’s team is going to play much better than today.”

Carlos Cardona, coach of Puerto Rico: “We couldn’t make the adjustments in the first two sets. Their game is very high and we couldn’t deal with it. In the third set we lost the fighting spirit. Our serve game failed and we made too many errors.”

Andrea Anastasi, head coach of Poland: “I am very happy for the guys because they have worked hard. This is a very young team and they need to win some games to improve their confidence. (Zbigniew) Bartman is playing as opposite for the first time and he’s doing very well and our setter (Lukasz) Zygadlo is also being tested as a regular player. This is the team that will play the finals and we want to win as many games as possible. So tomorrow we will go for another win.”
